reading
in a sunny corner
of the house
I could be

Psalm 52

But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God:
I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

a prayer from childhood

I Remember

I remember
when I was young

and first began
to watch plants
and flowers grow

and then placed
one rose from
a garden of our own

in a glass of water
on a table
by a comfortable chair

and sat there
most likely with
books and notebooks

a flower from the yard
