POEM

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

Spruce Tree Poems

morning light
through branches
reaches where I write

branches viewed
in the corner windows
beloved old tree

spruce tree branches
by the windows
each day a painting
