Pelicans – Lake Michigan

I completed a draft for a new book of poetry, and now am selecting possible photos by Karl. He took these photos of the pelicans and Lake Michigan in May 2019.

July to August

summer
watching the sky change
and sunrise
plants and flowers
in the gardens
another year
in hosta time

August sunrise
goldenrod grows tall
by the window

Verse from our Psalms series:

They go from strength to strength . . .

From Psalm 84: 7 – May 18, 2020 post

Lake Michigan: Poems and Photos

pink clouds
over Lake Michigan
as I listen to old hymns
my heart gathers peace
for this day

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

June 2018

Pelicans were here May 2019. These two photos are by Karl.
