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.

books and music

books and music
from over the years
live on these shelves
even if I don’t
reread or listen again
somehow their
healing influence
is in these words

I enjoyed donating some boxes of books and poetry journals this year, and plan a Christmas donation with a few music CDs.
