seasons repeat

seasons repeat
we tell the stories
we are given

Lake Michigan – November 6, 2017


I have been learning about haiku for a long time.  Now my poems bring to mind many years, with hope for the future.

books on the shelf
supported by each other
kindness of friends

answers to prayers
I did not know to pray
verses of Psalms

strength for the iris
while waiting to bloom

sun reaches trees
also old pine wood
in the house
