roses in the sun

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2018

We are working on a second large print chapbook, in the same style as Quiet Christmas Poetry.  The theme is Wisconsin Seasons and Encouragement.

roses in the sun
some ending
some beginning
and some in full bloom
good to grow older

cold days

My Journal Poems

cold days and serene
sunrises sunsets
hard life chapters
shine with God’s promises
fulfilled in time

Image: sample from Artistic Plants and Flowers
(Dover Publications).

I wrote the poem in 2011.
