Haiku For The Seasons

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

*

praying the Psalms
old rose bush leans
against evergreens

*

lake and sky
the same color
Autumn Equinox

*

late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

Time Of Singing, Fall 2013

*

staying with the light
I read in different corners
of the house

*

how still
the winter landscape
I whisper the Psalms

*

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover

*

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

*

Ellen Grace Olinger

rain today

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

wind

wind
through fields
of corn

driving
past a tree farm

I remember
when these trees
were small

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.
