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.

Photos, Memories, New Poems

photos of sunflowers
the field on the way home
from my mother’s home
years and years ago
gave me strength

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18: 1

My poem is from a new sequence at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin:
August days go by.

Another idea is a haiku or two – perhaps writing prompts for a poetry lesson. With a general beginning, writers can add their own images and reflections. I was viewing photos at the WordPress.com free photo library.

Lighthearted Haiku

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
