Rereading Bible Verses

rereading Bible verses
I recall from younger years

God knew

He would bring me
here from there

and faith grows

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.
Psalm 18: 1 (KJV)

waves of wind
through evergreen trees
with strong deep roots

Easter Dinner

The background is red
Her hair has become silver
And her dress is rust.
Her smile these days is pure gold
And her eyes sparkle anew.

This poem was written for my mother.

It was published first in Time of Singing (1993).
