Old and New Poems

Christmas carnations

in the vase
that used to hold
fresh flowers for Mom

each in turn
to bless us

November afternoon

November afternoon
I have an appointment
with the light
in my study

dishes washed
and put away
time with poetry
in my study


for as long
as I can remember
the wonder of books

morning light

morning light
some of the plant leaves
in the sun

morning light
pages of poems
in a book *
leaves of a plant
in the sun

Forsythia Leaves

Forsythia leaves are falling now too. The way the light falls on the perennial gardens and paths is beautiful. Daffodils, primroses, ferns, daylilies, and wildflowers will return. Orange pumpkins add bright color to the scene. As wonderful as the flowers were, are, and shall be – this restful beauty is so welcome. I enjoy October colors, and then November as well.

Poems in this post are by Ellen Grace Olinger.
