Incarnate Word by Charles A. Waugaman

Icon, image,
Portrait,
Scope.

Substance, promise,
Mirror,
Hope.

Christ holds Love,
Peace, for
All.

Earth, universe,
Palace,
Stall.

The painting and poem are by Charles A. Waugaman (1932 – 2010), from a Christmas card he sent years ago. The date on his card is November 5, 2002.

His poem was published by Time Of Singing, A Journal Of Christian Poetry. Winter 2006/2007.

December Poems

I created this collection for our site, Easter And Spring Poetry. I am staying in touch there through the seasons now. This is a reprint of the post yesterday.

“These poems are from posts at POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN this year.”

peaceful time
with my blogs
remembrance

Midwest seasons
decades of life
each familiar
and yet always
new

reflections of lights
in the windows
with Norway Spruce
tree branches
and pine cones

new place
for the Christmas cactus
sunroom window

tall weathered tree
clouds and blue sky
fill the spaces
where branches
no longer grow

December sunrise
evergreens in wind
and light

December garden
evergreen light
wind and blue sky
