books and music

books and music
from over the years
live on these shelves
even if I don’t
reread or listen again
somehow their
healing influence
is in these words

I enjoyed donating some boxes of books and poetry journals this year, and plan a Christmas donation with a few music CDs.

Short Poems

reading old letters
reflections of Christmas lights
on the water

holiness
and humility
Christmas

Christmas night sky
becomes sunrise
tree branches
covered with ice
glisten in the sun

new year
on the horizon
simple lines
of barns and trees
in the fog

Quiet Christmas Poetry

Small Study Poems

time with a book
light reaches my chair
through trees

late November
warmth of sunlight
on my desk chair

all a day can hold
sun and shadows
on the wood window frame
above my desk
in my small study

new light
in my study
waterfall
