Lake Michigan haiku

small waves to shore
one song after another
fades to silence

Lake Michigan is always changing.

Today I am listening to Karen Marie Garrett “Award-Winning Pianist and Composer.”

Photo of Lake Michigan
and MUSE acrostic

Cold

Icebergs along the shore, and ice in the waters of Lake Michigan.  No waves.  Steam rises from the lake and is part of the clouds.  Much of the sky though is a clear blue.

Quiet Christmas Poetry

holiness
and humility
Christmas

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

tree branches
and winter white sky
poem on the page

Christmas night sky
becomes sunrise
tree branches
covered with ice
glisten in the sun

looking at trees
I remember prayers
of friends

These are poems from Quiet Christmas Poetry.
