Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

reading from books
with well-earned wisdom
light on evergreens

I have mentioned Madeleine L’Engle and Luci Shaw. They wrote a book together called Friends for the Journey: Two extraordinary women celebrate friendships made and sustained through the seasons of life (copyright 1997 by the two authors; Servant Publications, Ann Arbor, Michigan). I saw on Amazon that there is a 2003 paperback version from Regent College Publishing, and I ordered a used copy. I love seeing the growth and history of a favorite book.

Winter days

Yesterday, we went to Schwarz Fish Company in Sheboygan, Wisconsin – the Wholesale Location this time. Then a drive to see the decorations and lights in the area. Karl observed that already the days are a little longer. Beautiful to watch the natural light change. All beautiful, whether someone created a grand display of lights, or a simple wreath.

Winter drive
holiday lights in Sheboygan
and small towns

Winter drive

a busy day
followed by
a quiet day
snow on the roof
and seawall

a busy day

in some ways

in some ways
I felt older than I was

my health
family caregiver

now that I am old
those years
give me strength
