three poems

mild December day
pheasants in fields
apples still on some trees
poems to write and
poetry journals to read

family tablecloths
passed on to me
they look like
the art I select
for my blogs

family party
blessed and now past
resting with haiku

The image is a sample
from Victorian Decorative Borders and Designs
(Dover Publications).

Quiet Christmas Poetry

Quiet Christmas Poetry is both a site and a large print chapbook.

Some examples of poems:

family dinner
memories span decades
in minutes

reading old letters
reflections of Christmas lights
on the water

Northern sun
shines on frozen beach
still the days grow shorter
shadow of poinsettia
on the wall

new year
on the horizon
simple lines
of barns and trees
in the fog
