Perhaps because

perhaps because
it is Autumn
I think of my mother

the season when
her last illness
began many years ago
and the trees
outside her hospital
window

I read to her
from the Psalms
and poets she would
know from long ago
and new poets too

most of all
I remember her faith
and unconditional love
that is with me still

From the Psalms:

Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty:
neither do I exercise myself in great matters,
or in things too high for me.

Surely I have behaved and quieted myself,
as a child that is weaned of his mother:
my soul is even as a weaned child.

Psalm 131: 1 – 2





pink and grey clouds

pink and grey clouds
with light

brown rice
with red peppers,
spinach, mushrooms,
peas, carrots,
and olive oil

cover art
for books and journals

grateful today
for art and colors
in so many ways

And from the Psalms:

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

Remember, O LORD,
thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses;
for they have been ever of old.

Psalm 25: 1, 6
