old pine trees

old pine trees
gave their lives long ago
so we could have shelter


yet the wood seems to live
radiates warmth and comfort

these are my thoughts
as Lent begins
and I quiet my soul

Poem from 2012

on a February afternoon
pine cones and clouds
Lake Michigan and ice

February Patience

As I pray a Psalm, on this sunny morning, I think “February patience.” I’ll try a poem.

praying a Psalm
in my small study
trees and sky
the verses bring
beauty and hope
to Winter days
and all days
