haibun and photos

When I think of this past Christmas, an enduring image is the holiday lights. Some people had grand displays, others simple, and all so bright and hopeful. Here and there, we put our holiday decorations away. Christmas kept awhile longer, and now Lent and then Easter. One day at a time.

January trees seen
through icicles

long ago
and remembered today
my father’s birthday

time for lunch
cardinals by a pumpkin
in the garden

and more becomes clear
a rabbit in the garden

late January
new snow on a tree
by the window

light and ice
on the water

blue sky and sun
shadows of spruce tree
on snow-covered yard

full moon and sunrise
cactus flowers
by the window

almost February
bright new blooms
on the Christmas cactus

after the storm
blue sky and
Spring poems

kitchen window
sun on the snowbank
by the garage

sun on the snowbank
where peonies and daylilies
will grow and bloom
