in the south window
geese in flight

outside my window
autumn quiet

rereading familiar
poems of faith

Bible on my shelf
a ribbon holds my place
in the Psalms

heart with hope

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).

Trust

But it is good for me to draw near to God:
I have put my trust in the Lord GOD,
that I may declare all thy works.

This is the day which the Lord hath made;

prayers before dawn
a few fireflies
by the window

green ferns
in morning light
bird songs

bright sun
and yellow flowers
Summer

mid-July
wildflowers grow
for butterflies

recollections
of summers gone by
voices on the breeze
