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

Poem

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally

SMILE
(Fall/Winter 2008 – 09)

SMILE, a large print poetry journal, was edited and published by Joyce M. Johnson for many years.

I enjoy the vintage art. This Spring, I decided to postpone work on another book. I am writing my journal poems – as the days and seasons are given. My blogs are a creative home for me now. Thank you.
