Books by Luci Shaw

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

I am thinking more about the years and decades that I’ve been reading books by Luci Shaw.

The Biographical Information at her site may be of interest. She was born in London, England in 1928.

Two examples of her poetry books on my shelves are:

LISTEN TO THE GREEN – Copyright 1971 Luci Shaw. Harold Shaw Publishers; Wheaton, Illinois.

EYE OF THE BEHOLDER: poems – Copyright 2018 Luci Shaw. Paraclete Press; Brewster, Massachusetts.

She writes about her life and growing older in a generous way.

You can also view her Photo Gallery.

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

early morning
and reading
many writers
each time I look
the sky has changed

July 2014

This summer I am rereading books by Luci Shaw, along with a few poetry journals. Here and there I look at memoirs from thrift stores.

Always the Psalms – a place of stability and hope for me. So much room for growth. Sometimes good to read something new, and sometimes good to reread.

Garden Haiku

wind uplifting
the branches of trees
sunrise

morning garden
shadows of lilacs
on the chair

reading memoirs
and then the view
outside today

reading poetry
in the garden
summer school

timeless seasons
I don’t know how old
these plants are

each flower
a star for a time
daylilies

treetops
in golden light
sunset

leaves of bleeding hearts

so does grief heal
Autumn grace
