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.
