faith
beauty of light
on the leafless
cotoneasters

long winter night
many years
go through my mind

the decades deepen
trust in God

and my heart is at peace

Creative Notes

This week I reviewed some of our archives, and created posts for Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin. Readers of this site will also be familiar with some of the content.

Time and Place

Time and Place: Grateful for Parks in Town

The first two posts include many of Karl’s photos. I like to think we are adding to the record of our local history. As I reviewed, I saw that I wrote several new haiku this year, and created a post for the poems.

Haiku 2019

And I wrote a post, Christmas 2019, for Quiet Christmas Poetry, so readers know the book is still available, with information about where to order. We created the book from the site in 2014, and I write an update once in a great while. Perhaps the book will be an introduction to blogs for some readers.

Poem and Photos

routine care
and happy to wait my turn
I watch the world go by
and my heart
fills with love
