beautiful used books
from different places room needed at a library for current books and spaces redesigned or someone moved and passed along a few books for others to discover not really “discarded” another way to bless and share
continue their journey today
one month ends
another begins evergreen branches frame the night sky

Sunday in June
silence for a time and prayers
P onder O ver E verything I see today M emorize and write one moment
to bless with primroses, lilacs, forget-me-nots, and bleeding hearts
and there will be peonies, roses, daylilies, and hosta flowers
Fall is welcome
in its time with all the colors and shorter days
from memory now though not the beauty and the quiet
Sometimes I wonder
where the years go and what the seasons were they are recorded here
Summer soon – June 7, 2019

We discovered the
Little Free Library site a few years ago. Karl and I donated copies of Quiet Christmas Poetry to the free libraries in our area. We also gave a copy to our Oostburg Library in town.
Karl’s winter photo of the Lake Michigan beach, several years ago, is the Cover Art for Quiet Christmas Poetry.
And I am grateful for the WordPress.com free photo library.
