fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older

cooler weather and strong winds
all the leaves falling and we see the shapes of trees
light streams into the house as the sun moves south
red geraniums still bloom
October turns to face November

in a sunny corner

raindrops
on hosta plants

so beautiful
with and without
flowers

their leaves
in the sun

quiet grey morning
all the books
I hope to read

quiet grey morning
a page or two
and the restful view

rain and wind
flower petals
on the wood porch

local corn
and soybean fields
turning gold
wildflowers
in the yard
and along the roads
September

reading poetry
my coffee gets cold
guess I made it
for the fragrance

“earthen vessels”

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels,

that the excellency
of the power

may be of God,
and not of us.
