November Wisconsin Countryside

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now.
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally.

SMILE (Fall/Winter 2008-2009)

This is a favorite old poem, my Thanksgiving poem.  The photo is from the yard.

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
