Sabbath

autumn fields

at rest

in rain

From 2010 – could also be written in 3 lines:

Sabbath
autumn fields at rest
in rain

gold
leaves

drifting

to the
ground

sunbeam

on the
water

From 2011

Dear Lord,

Thank You for this day,
which You already know.

May I follow You each moment,
and trust You more,
and so rest as I work.

Thank You for your Love . . .

From 2012

now the October days
of later sunrises
rapidly falling leaves
more color each day

I cannot hope to hold
all the blessings

yet I receive them
with an open heart

catch a few in a poem

place a pumpkin
by the back door

say THANK YOU

From 2013

rain today
how soon we reach
the end of what we know
and how deep
faith continues to grow

From 2014

Seek Ye First . . .

The Daily Post prompt for July 11 was Born to Be With You.  This prompt asked for a description of a soul-mate and/or best friend.  I thought of Matthew 6: 33 and seeking God first.

gentle spring winds
in evergreen trees
the friendship we grew

fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older

sunrise
river of light
along the evergreens
the friends who stayed

I took the photo at the beginning of the post yesterday, after rain.  Here is the iris as it first bloomed.
