Summer in my soul

This is a new poem, and these are a few of the many good photos by others that I posted so far this year.

Short Poems: May 2021

breakfast and music
when a song begins
I know the words
Amazing Grace

on my grandmother’s
straw chest
near the window
fills with light

Poems From Psalms And Nature

work in the kitchen
red tulip and new ferns
by the cedar fence

small red geranium
happy in the greenhouse
and now our home
on a small table
with carnations

The geranium is from Windmill Gardens
in Cedar Grove, Wisconsin.

Thought I would share a few sites that may be of interest. There are many good works, and a blog post that shares some light and hope is wonderful as well. Thank you.

Garden Tea Party by Charles A. Waugaman

Listen to the leaves
of robin song
spill into the rain:

parched dreams expanding
and staining the
long afternoon with

poignant fragrances:
blending past and
hope with vibrant joy.
