Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

early June morning
pelicans fly over the water
a deer walks through the yard

new carnations
in an old glass vase
by the window

poinsettia and lily plants
placed by the back patio door
only yesterday
and still in the house

new green
on evergreen branches
an image loved for years
the small new growth

and lilacs bloom

Short Journal Notes

New Poems – May 2019 is a post from my site Poems From Psalms And Nature. It is a small collection of poems.

The post includes poems I wrote this month, and posted first on my primary site, Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.

The post was inspired by Mother’s Day, as my mother encouraged me to write.

For this site, one of my goals is to review my handwritten journals, and then share and save some content here. I am just beginning this project. I came across a memory of an older neighbor who expressed appreciation for my poetry some time ago. Those are the kinds of treasures I want to rediscover and save.

Thank you. I enjoy trying different WordPress themes and the new editor. I learn more about design, try different colors etc. Blessings for your work.

Daylilies are growing, and daffodils are in bloom. I took these photos in the yard last week.
