Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

Sometimes I think of a few words to describe what I see. Today I look at the yard from my study window, and “evergreen light” is what I see. Some wind in the branches and blue sky. Then I may try a few poems.

evergreens in wind
and light

Poems From Psalms And Nature

the field on the way home
from my mother’s home
years and years ago
gave me strength

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18: 1

My poem is from a new sequence atPoems From Oostburg, Wisconsin:
August days go by.

Another idea is a haiku or two – perhaps writing prompts for a poetry lesson. With a general beginning, writers can add their own images and reflections. I was viewing photos at the free photo library.
