And new poems:

new books
from the library
spring gardens

more colors
in the gardens
forget me nots

with primroses
forget me nots

May morning
sounds of work
in the neighborhood

kitchen window
primrose colors
in the sun

poems to see
and perhaps write
primroses near the door


Pink Floral Bouquet – Reusable Art

sun on a vase

sun on a vase
from my mother’s home
in the room where I write
she often asked,
“Are you writing?”


Easter Then and Now

Daily writing prompt
What makes you laugh?

Years ago, when I was recovering from illness and major surgery, and passings of loved ones, the Easter Story gave me hope.  And more so all the time. Simple meals and errands fill me with joy.

These thoughts are from a post on April 7, 2017. Major new challenges were in the future. Simple everyday life continues to be a blessing, with many moments of joy.
