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

Short Advent Poems

Christmas CDs
playing with the volume low
in the fields
the beauty of harvested
corn in snow

Northern sun
shines on frozen beach
still the days grow shorter
shadow of poinsettia
on the wall

lighting the
Christmas candle
tiny flame
transforms
the night

Christmas night sky
becomes sunrise
tree branches
covered with ice
glisten in the sun

snowflakes
floating in the air
separate
together
artists
across places
and time

Quiet Christmas Poetry

“lighting the Christmas candle” was also published by Hermitage (2005) and The Writers’ Bistro (2007).
