clouds and sky
spruce tree branches still
that offer hope
Large Print Poems is a site that we began in August 2020. I reprint poems that seem to last over the years, and also new poems in large print.
Over the years, I have grown a small collection of books, poetry journals, and art on the walls in my small study. We have visited thrift stores in our area, and bought discarded books from libraries. Art from friends and small businesses and presses.
Old books with my mother’s handwriting are a treasure. These may become art collage journals.
I like to create arrangements that are simple and change every so often. It is interesting to see how colors and art work together. There is a conversation, it seems. One work says – see how art grows from a diffcult time. Another says – rest awhile.
So often there is a story. I see how we can learn and grow new creative chapters in our lives. New work that is better can grow, with patience and time. I reflect upon health and creativity often.
clouds picture a poem
perhaps a haiku
one day at a time
sparrows in the yard
on a few shelves
R efresh and renew
A ppreciate plants in all their stages
I nvite new dreams as we age and life changes
N ever without hope
Monday grey sky
on the windows
how green the trees
in morning light
