quiet poems

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

pink clouds
over Lake Michigan
as I listen to old hymns
my heart gathers peace
for this day

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

paintings of trees
on old pine walls
quiet music

prayers before dawn
a few fireflies
by the window

green ferns
in morning light
bird songs

bright sun
and yellow flowers
Summer

mid-July
wildflowers grow
for butterflies

recollections
of summers gone by
voices on the breeze

older now

older now
used books settle
in their new home
