I look out my windows–the same windows for over two decades–and contemplate my life of faith. There were years when I could not write often. Now many poems are given to me, and they seem like pages from a journal. Not perfect, from my heart. While I am learning more about craft, there is also something special about these poems. Yet because so many years are a part of each one, they reflect a lot of work as well.
My first and primary blog with WordPress, begun in December 2009, includes a wide variety of posts. I add more posts often and enjoy the comments. http://www.ellenolinger.wordpress.com
Now it also seems time to review what I have written and organize my work in different ways. The wonderful WordPress themes offer so many options. So here I am reprinting in one place my “journal poems,” from this poet’s window.
