Wisconsin seasons

Over twenty years, I’ve been watching the seasons here.  I never tire of the same views or of writing the same poems.  Only hope to capture a little more, a little better.

frost on the lawn

leaves
of the wild rose
turn gold

one gold leaf clings to the screen memories

beauty of trees shaped by winds

Three Poems

always
see them arrive
within a day or two
but not leave
robins

gold leaves dance
in sun and wind
psalms of praise

Photo Challenge: Temporary

Temporary – The colors of Lake Michigan are always changing, and the lake levels over time.  The perennials also show change, as they grow, bloom, and fade.  Rest.  Bloom again.
