July to August

summer
watching the sky change
and sunrise
plants and flowers
in the gardens
another year
in hosta time

August sunrise
goldenrod grows tall
by the window

Verse from our Psalms series:

They go from strength to strength . . .

My poem is from July 26, 2013, with this garden journal photo by Karl:

Psalm 128

Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD;
that walketh in his ways.

For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands:
happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

Psalm 128: 1 – 2

I also thought it might be helpful if I add a few links to earlier posts, to some of the current posts.
