haiku

one red tulip
blooms in the hosta border
time alone with God

Daily Haiku: Sept. 22, 2022

My poem was published in A Moment’s Longing, Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology 2019, edited by Tanya McDonald.

I am grateful, and still remember seeing this poem in the yard.

Three Garden Poems

daylilies bloom
every year and again
this year

garden memories
some losses over time
what stays and blooms
every year – snowdrops,
daffodils, daylilies, hosta,
goldenrod – and new plants
to try a few at a time

summer garden
some work yesterday
we keep the path
to the door clear
rest in an old chair
careful with the sun
and new ideas for
the garden this year

POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN

wpclipart

Summer soon

Spring continues
to bless with primroses,
lilacs, forget-me-nots,
and bleeding hearts

Summer soon
and there will be peonies,
roses, daylilies, and hosta
flowers

Fall is welcome
in its time with
all the colors
and shorter days

Winter fades
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
