November morning
I learn the light
of a new time

I posted my new poem at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin on November 4, 2019.

Poem and Creative Notes

driving home
on different roads
and streets

these trees are taller

I remember places
that only exist in photos
and memories now

and then
the beauty

of today

I searched this site to see if I had published this poem before, and I rediscovered this Guest Post by Carol Purington (April 6, 2017). Her tanka are wonderful. The phrase in common is “driving home.”

You can visit Carol Purington at Woodslawn Farm, and read her new post there for March 2019.

From the root-cellar
the last of the winter squash
still succulent,
the poem you wrote recalling
a grandmother’s hearty soup
