Two Poems

clouds with some blue
outside my study window
some days God seems so clear
other days I must dwell more deeply
in my reading of the Psalms

*

writing and reading
I don’t see the dust

then seeing
I remember

and know He does not forget
and understands

with Love

Psalm 103: 14 (KJV)
For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth we are dust.

birds perch
in sheltering branches —
a grain of mustard seed
