Bloganuary 2022

The daily prompts from The Team at WordPress.com are excellent. I am writing posts at POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN.

Yesterday the question was What do you like most about your writing?

I wrote, My writing is from my heart.

Then I searched in my archives for my “heart poems” and created two more posts:

Heart Poems and Heart Poems – 2.

Some of my posts are longer. I also realized that times I have not been able to write – work, family, health – new stories were growing in my life. Gratitude and Hope.

Photos, Memories, New Poems

the field on the way home
from my mother’s home
years and years ago
gave me strength

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18: 1

My poem is from a new sequence at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin:
August days go by.

Another idea is a haiku or two – perhaps writing prompts for a poetry lesson. With a general beginning, writers can add their own images and reflections. I was viewing photos at the WordPress.com free photo library.
