Winter Solstice

I searched in my archives for a few poems about light.

these days
my heart is drawn
to pray more
and contemplate
the Light of the World

John 1: 5a (KJV): And the light shineth in darkness . . .

light shines
through one window
and falls on the wood
frame of another
the light is shared

“But as it is written . . .”

But as it is written,
eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard,
neither have entered
into the heart of man,

the things which
God hath prepared
for them that love him.

1 Corinthians 2: 9 (KJV)

Christmas candle

lighting the
Christmas candle
tiny flame
transforms
the night

From The November Archives

For thou, O God,
hast heard my vows:

thou hast given me
the heritage

of those that fear thy name.

Psalm 61: 5 (KJV)

light snow
on harvested fields
peace of small roads

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels,

that the excellency
of the power

may be of God,
and not of us.

2 Corinthians 4: 7 (KJV)

staying with light
I read in different corners
of the house
