short summer poems

summer morning
green plants in sun
on Grace’s straw chest

For my grandmother Grace

Haiku Art Site and Grief And Acceptance

summer evening
quiet music and
a few Psalms
new evergreen growth
still in the sun

The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)

hummingbird
and hosta flowers
by the windows
in the sunroom
stillness

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

forsythia
by the garage
and cedar fence
green and yellow
in the day’s light

I am reading Luci Shaw’s new book, Angels Everywhere: Poems (2022, Paraclete Press). I have been reading her poetry and prose for decades.

“Evening, and morning, and at noon”

Evening, and morning, and at noon,
will I pray, and cry aloud:
and he shall hear my voice.

Psalm 55: 17
