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

“spruce tree branches” was published by WestWard Quarterly (Winter 2021).

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
