short summer poems

summer morning
green plants in sun
on Grace’s straw chest

For my grandmother Grace

Haiku Art Site and Grief And Acceptance

summer evening
quiet music and
a few Psalms
new evergreen growth
still in the sun

The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)

hummingbird
and hosta flowers
by the windows
in the sunroom
stillness

POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN

new summer season

new summer season
I begin the day
with Psalm 1

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1: 3

“Peace be within thy walls”

Peace be within thy walls,
and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions’ sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek thy good.

Psalm 122: 7 – 9
