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

From Psalm 27

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 27: 14

Journal Poem: Grateful Today

plants and flowers
through the seasons

how welcome the snowdrops
in Spring – daffodils, tulips
and primroses

Summer in our yard
offers daylilies, hosta, goldenrod
hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees

chrysanthemums, coneflowers,
and asters – how wonderful
to grow so well when so much
is past for the year

Just some thoughts today, that I hope to write about again. We bought chrysanthemums at Walmart in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. And saw coneflowers and asters too. Grateful today.
