More Vintage Images

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.

Photo Challenge: Waiting

Waiting – we have long winters in Wisconsin, and spring is slow to grow, after it arrives.   This is good time, and it is good to rest and wait.  To be outside more now – late summer here – and leave some tasks for the long winter.

the gift of seasons

still having the faith
to keep trying when
we could have stayed
discouraged many times

(though sometimes we need
a rest and can trust
our part of this work
to others for a time)

the miracle of being here

saying our thank yous
to God

and to one another

this day

This is a poem from August 2012 on this site.
I called that post Sunrise Poem.
