Garden Tea Party by Charles A. Waugaman

GARDEN TEA PARTY

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.

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

“the bread of life”

My Journal Poems

FallBouquet 001

my large print Bible
rests on the Thanksgiving tray
the bread of life

John 6: 35 (KJV):  And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life:  he that cometh to me shall never hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

FallBouquet 004

birds perch
in sheltering branches –
a grain of mustard seed

Matthew 13: 31 – 32

(Published in Time Of Singing, 1995)

FallBouquet 011Northern sun
shines on frozen beach
still the days grow shorter
shadow of poinsettia
on the wall

(Quiet Christmas Poetry)
