Vintage Picture and Two Poems

feeling new poems
fallow fields
waking up

(Time Of Singing, 2000)

This was a poem about beginning to write again, as I recall.

cup of coffee
by the water
this day to God

Now when I begin the day, I wonder what poems may be given. And when I am unable to write, I review my archives, as you know. And anytime, good to review if we can. We may be surprised to rediscover some old work. See some growth. Be encouraged to continue, try new ideas. And always beauty – I rest and look out the window. A different pace now, with peaceful gratitude.

near the garage
on a cold March day
bird songs

soon the garden
will begin in small ways
snowdrops

These are new haiku, posted recently at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin. I write practice poems often. This is a longer journal poem:

all the changes
and new blessings

with time

so much I no longer
think about too much

what stays and grows?

unconditional love
the growing light
of this day

my own path with poetry
