trees and prayers

looking at trees
I remember prayers
of friends

My haiku was published at Poems From Psalms And Nature on May 16, 2012. Reprinted in the book, The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press).

Karl and I also reprinted the poem in Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014).

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

new summer season

new summer season
I begin the day
with Psalm 1

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1: 3
