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

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.

Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog

Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog is a good resource. She features a poet and poem every day, and sometimes I reblog a post here. The poet may be someone I know through our WordPress sites, through volunteer work at The Haiku Foundation, or another reason. I love to learn, and read all the poems.

Charlotte was the Regional Coordinator for the Midwest at the Haiku Society of America, when I reconnected years ago with that organization. Julie Warther is our current Coordinator for the Midwest Region.

I have always lived in the Midwest, USA. I am retired now, and blog in an informal way. Thank you for your visits!

how clear

how clear
the path today
snow in the furrows
of beautifully
plowed fields
