trees

the green that goes
the green that stays
evergreens

trees with leaves
and Fall colors
and then their
shapes and sky

trees with holiday
lights in Winter

and trees
with blossoms
and new leaves
in Spring

From Psalm 1:

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1: 3

Two Poems

today the sun shines

today the sun shines
after much rain
and I think about
art on the walls
and arrangements
how shapes and colors
work together

and also spaces
with nothing more
like a new journal
or blog post
a page of paper
what may yet
be created?

Writing Practice: May 7, 2021

morning work
in the kitchen

reading a new-used book

blue sky and some clouds

birch trees in May
wind and evergreens

daffodils and primroses
in the yard

sounds of work
in the neighborhood

type a list
