once a lady
now in tatters
maiden called to the sea in youth
memories whisper in the wind
seize the poem prompt # 9 tatters

spring’s chores
chain saws in distance
yard clean up time
wind rain ice and snow
next winter’s fire wood
seize the poem prompt # 33 … whirr

first day of spring
fresh snow covers blossoms
spots of color brighten day
early blooms shiver
seize the poem Prompt #13 your words

pie day on pi day
yummy pizza pie calls day
snowed in
tasty treat on my mind
big tips for delivery
Third Winter Storm in two weeks.
How could it be on pi day? sigh.

sunny window nap
cold nose, warm heart
weather outside frightful

with at least Siamese mix

among white birch and pine
along the DownEast Coast
feels so right
glaciers formed rocky coast
Mother Nature’s flowers smile

thoughts of you
wondering what
I’m missing
what you’re writing
and I’m not
first the puter
then the knee
then the puter again
but now is mended
along with knee
so long away…
seems like a year
and not a month
knee replacement
takes hard work
getting back up and going
one more knee to go
time flies
as one ages
places to go
things to do
