country roads

country roads
signs of change
in the landscape
and sky

yard overgrown
with plants
for bees
and butterflies

so much can wait
one step at a time
so much gets done

looking up

looking up
from reading Psalms
butterfly shelters
under the eaves
in light rain

old books

old books from thrift stores
with their art and history
someone’s name or a library
from a place far away
with an old card

a note written in the book
to encourage someone
or a gift for a special day
books that are new for me
and to read today
