I remember prayers

Published first here at Poems From Psalms And Nature on May 16, 2012.

Karl and I reprinted the poem in Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014).

Then my haiku was reprinted in this book:

The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press).

I am grateful to see how a poem can last, be read again, and shared in new ways.

Creative Review Note

The Psalms Series: June 2020 Index is a Page filed under Menu. Thought it would be helpful to review, as we near the end of June 2021.

One example is the post, Psalm 107 and short poems.

O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.

For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

Psalm 107: 1, 9

new leaves
on the birch tree
and on the branch
with no leaves
a robin

on the branch
with no leaves
sun and shadows

Short poems are by Ellen Grace Olinger.
