country roads

country roads
signs of change
in the landscape
and sky

yard overgrown
with plants
for bees
and butterflies

so much can wait
one step at a time
so much gets done

May 2022 Poems

spring colors
poetry journals and books
on a brown tablecloth

their own beauty
birch trees and
blue sky

kitchen window
forsythia in bloom
and a daffodil in light

new leaves
on the birch tree
May study window

May afternoon
and I read in my study
light on the file cabinet
with cards and letters
before and since email
old poems as well
treasures to rediscover
and remember
perhaps this summer
