TREES

reading poems
by Ted Kooser
and I look again
at the trees
and some years
were hard and also
the new growth
in today’s sun
and they are beautiful

Creative Note: Quiet Christmas Poetry

Christmas Blessings 2022 is a new post at Quiet Christmas Poetry, to let those who may be interested know that our book is still available. I wrote:

Quiet Christmas Poetry, the large print chapbook that Karl and I created from this site, may be ordered from Time of Singing poetry journal. Lora Homan Zill is Editor.

There is a Time of Singing Order Form filed under “subscriptions/back issues/books” at the Time of Singing site.

Seasons of Gratitude

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally
