Daily Prompt – a good leader

What makes a good leader?

Daily Prompt

I thought about humility, as one example, and then searched for posts and poems that may go well with this prompt.

Daily Prompt

What is one thing you would change about yourself?

Daily Prompt

I am grateful for grace, and I continue to learn these older years. So much more I hope to achieve – one small step, one post at a time.

far from perfect
and in need of grace
we found our way
to unconditional love

Anthologies: Three Poems

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

reading memoirs
and then the view
outside today

light falls
through yellow maple leaves
the mercy of God

peaceful morning – Bundled Wildflowers, Haiku Society of America 2020 Members’ Anthology. Bryan Rickert, Editor. And Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog, Nov. 10, 2020.

One idea I have for a new Page is to create a sequence of my poems that have been published in anthologies. Perhaps this post is a good way to begin a small collection, for Poems From Psalms And Nature.

Poems in this post are by Ellen Grace Olinger. Thank you.

Easter and Spring Poetry 2022

I began reviewing our Easter and Spring Poetry site. This year, I decided to reprint poems that readers seem to especially like in large bold print, with different images.

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

Prompt of the day: What is a road trip you would love to take?

I look forward to more drives again here in Sheboygan County, Midwest, USA. When we moved here years ago, I learned how to drive to Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, Wisconsin; and home again, on country roads and streets.

There is a Mead Public Library Blog. I recognized the WordPress theme they use and follow their blog.

We also enjoy our Oostburg Public Library.

Sometimes we visit the Cedar Grove Public Library in Cedar Grove, Wisconsin.

And I am sure many readers know about theLittle Free Librarysite and program. There are many little libraries in our area.

With books, we can visit many places!

Two poems from our Archives:

routine errands
never routine
country roads

new library books
and wandering home
on all the roads
fields, Spring air, sky
first red-winged blackbird
