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

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

Time of Singing poetry journal

Time of Singing poetry journal, edited by Lora Zill, has a new site. This print journal was one of the first to publish my poems, and I am grateful. Today I am reading the Winter 2020/21 issue (Volume 47, Number 3).

Here is an early poem.

birds perch
in sheltering branches
a grain of mustard seed

Matthew 13: 31–32 inspired my poem.
Published by Time of Singing (1995).
