time with a book
needed rain falls
on the gardens . . .
quiet and I hear
the sound of a train
I am rereading A Listening Life, by Tracy Balzer (2011, Pinyon Publishing). Sometimes I may read through a book, and then later read paragraphs aloud, and stay with a page or two for a time.
Tracy Balzer “carry some quiet around” is the author’s site.
I am reading Park Bench Memories: Haiku Tailwinds, by Gary Hotham. As stated in the book, he has been writing haiku since 1966. The haiku in this book were previously published in the last ten years, in many publications. Gary Hotham states, “Making moments wear words.” Wonderful book.

From my longer poem in the previous post, I wrote a haiku.
journals in the mail
new season of art
new green leaves
on trees that knew
of dramatic autumns
in silence sometimes
and in small ways
new dreams grow
Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is a book that we published with Time of Singing poetry journal. I reread the book recently, and the poems are strong and timeless.
Lora Homan Zill and I served as the Editors. Charles A. Waugaman was the Art Editor and Illustrator.
The book includes poems by many poets. With the universal themes of faith and hope, the book continues to be a beautiful work of art.
