old and new

old and new
memories
grow together now
weeping willow trees

The “peach blossom photo” is courtesy of wpclipart – one of the first sites I discovered when I began blogging several years ago.

My primary blog is Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.

I enjoy being creative in many ways, and also view a wide variety of posts at other sites. I write poetry, including haiku and tanka. My major themes are art, beauty, creativity, encouragement, faith, gratitude, grief, health, and hope. Many life chapters, and always hope.

rain today
how soon we reach
the end of what we know
and how deep
faith continues to grow
