November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now.
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally.

4:45 in the morning – I hear the birds sing.

quiet life

quiet life
the only life
I can live
want to live

wild roses
and windmills
on country roads

My life needed to change, after a chronic illness and major surgery in 1993.

I am 63 now and grateful.
