one red tulip
blooms in the hosta border
time alone with God

Daily Haiku: Sept. 22, 2022

My poem was published in A Moment’s Longing, Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology 2019, edited by Tanya McDonald.

I am grateful, and still remember seeing this poem in the yard.

Words from the Psalms

As I worked on this morning’s post, From Psalm 25, I thought again about the wonderful vocabulary list that can be created from the Psalms. For our series in 2020, I quoted from the King James Version. Over the years, I have read from different Bible translations.

soul

mercies

lovingkindnesses

“Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.”

An old haiku:

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* The first line of my poem is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV).

Anthologies: Three Poems

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

reading memoirs
and then the view
outside today

light falls
through yellow maple leaves
the mercy of God

One idea I have for a new Page is to create a sequence of my poems that have been published in anthologies. Perhaps this post is a good way to begin a small collection, for Poems From Psalms And Nature.

Poems in this post are by Ellen Grace Olinger. Thank you.
