Bleeding Hearts: Photo and Poems

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

This is another beautiful photo by Karl from yesterday.

Poems from my archives, inspired by bleeding hearts:

old photos
on my desk —
bleeding hearts in bloom

Published first inTime Of Singing(1994). Also reprinted with the poems selected for myPoet Profileat The Haiku Foundation.

AUTUMN GRACE

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace

Published by Bell’s Letters Poet, SMILE, and WestWard Quarterly.

I took this photo on July 2, 2018. Previous owners planted our peonies years ago. The peonies are just beginning to grow again this year.

In August 2018, I posted a small collection of my haiku:
Haiku For The Seasons.

My post could become a small printed chapbook some day, with a few photos and credits. Perhaps a book to send someone with a card.

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind

I have mentioned Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog. Charlotte publishes poems by many poets, along with other content.

Please see Charlotte’s recent post from April 27, 2019 at her blog: Exhibit Travels Again: Haiku & Senryu.
