fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older

cooler weather and strong winds
all the leaves falling and we see the shapes of trees
light streams into the house as the sun moves south
red geraniums still bloom
October turns to face November

in a sunny corner

raindrops
on hosta plants

so beautiful
with and without
flowers

their leaves
in the sun

quiet grey morning
all the books
I hope to read

quiet grey morning
a page or two
and the restful view

rain and wind
flower petals
on the wood porch

local corn
and soybean fields
turning gold
wildflowers
in the yard
and along the roads
September

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

” . . . whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Philippians 4: 8 (KJV)

small blankets

as if they could
store the sun
small blankets
on a chair
add color to
the scene
as they await
to warm
another time
