Psalm 37 and Short Poems

Trust in the LORD, and do good;
so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed.

Psalm 37: 3

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

gulls lifting
from the sand
corn an inch tall

summer sun
thrift store bowl painted
with leaves and fruit

mid-August
blueberries on sale
from Canada now

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

“gulls lifting” was published in SMILE (2009, 2010); and Bell’s Letters Poet (2010).

Poems are by Ellen Grace Olinger.
