gardens growing

gardens growing
long before we came here
how deep the roots
must be and decades old
planted in God’s earth

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan today
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

Ellen Grace Olinger

Four Haiku

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover

after a warm day
and worth the wait
forsythia

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind

Ellen Grace Olinger
