Haiku Diary: Last Week In April

early morning
bird songs

some time for poems
from Spring journals

old trees and sunrise
by Lake Michigan

April days go by
snowdrops grow and bloom

light begins
in the sky

And today:

small flowers
and poems

Haiku Art Site

Primrose and daylily plants are beginning to grow in our garden. April flowers are snowdrops – these small flowers and they still bloom.

Meditation: Books and Journals

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

I look at the books and journals in our home and am grateful. There is a wide selection: poetry, memoirs, novels, books discarded by libraries, books from thrift stores, books given as gifts. Poets I’ve read for decades, and new poets in journals and who post on their blogs.

Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings, by Joni Mitchell, was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2019; and is a beautiful book. She wrote a forward in May 2019. And she is as grateful as ever.

Poetry called to me from the Psalms, and the hymns, from church. Then when I was young I heard Joni Mitchell, and other artists. I could write too!

Monday afternoon
in March
sun fills a bookcase
from my father
