Creative Note: Quiet Christmas Poetry

Christmas Blessings 2022 is a new post at Quiet Christmas Poetry, to let those who may be interested know that our book is still available. I wrote:

Quiet Christmas Poetry, the large print chapbook that Karl and I created from this site, may be ordered from Time of Singing poetry journal. Lora Homan Zill is Editor.

There is a Time of Singing Order Form filed under “subscriptions/back issues/books” at the Time of Singing site.

Anthologies: Three Poems

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

reading memoirs
and then the view
outside today

light falls
through yellow maple leaves
the mercy of God

peaceful morning – Bundled Wildflowers, Haiku Society of America 2020 Members’ Anthology. Bryan Rickert, Editor. And Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog, Nov. 10, 2020.

One idea I have for a new Page is to create a sequence of my poems that have been published in anthologies. Perhaps this post is a good way to begin a small collection, for Poems From Psalms And Nature.

Poems in this post are by Ellen Grace Olinger. Thank you.

late August
and still Summer
bees and goldenrod
by a sunny window
on a quiet morning
