Seasons At Home

Write about your dream home.

Daily writing prompt

We have always lived in the Midwest, USA. The seasons inspire poems. I am grateful for our old home, and gardens with perennial plants and flowers.

small book

Something on your “to-do list” that never gets done.

Daily writing prompt

I have postponed a chapbook a few times. There is no hurry though. Our previous book, Quiet Christmas Poetry, began as a blog and then became a large print chapbook in 2014. The book is still shared and read.

Many important ways to help and encourage. For this site, I think about literacy programs, and books for all ages. And good to support libraries in general.

What books do you want to read?

Daily Prompt

I do not remember learning how to read, but remember well the wonder of books, libraries, and gradually growing my own collection. I read the Bible, poetry books and journals. novels, and memoirs. Examples of authors are Jan Karon, Luci Shaw, and Ted Kooser. Many wonderful writers I could mention!
