Poems and Seasons

In my previous post, Poems, I published a sequence of poems that relate to the language arts. For this post, I am working with the theme of seasons.

evergreen stillness
deep roots and stable
Winter soon

blue sky
and snow on evergreens

old songs
that are ever-new
Spring soon

perennial gardens
past Winter and soon
their new Spring

daylilies bloom
every year and again
this year

late Summer garden
and the lake in sun
blessings of friendship

days grow shorter
gentle turning
of windmills

staying with the light
I read in different

I am reviewing the poems I have published here so far. Here is a sequence that relates to the language arts.

new space
on a few shelves
donated books

reading journals
new generation of poets
since I began

time with old friends
poems in a journal
from years ago

treasures stored
here and there
homemade books

reading a new book
the fragrance
of fresh paper

found an old journal
more blessings noted
than I knew

books on the shelf
supported by each other
kindness of friends
