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

beautiful used books

beautiful used books
from different places
room needed at a library
for current books and
spaces redesigned
or someone moved and
passed along a few books
for others to discover
not really “discarded”
another way to bless
and share

and books
continue their journey
today

“Evening, and morning, and at noon”

Evening, and morning, and at noon,
will I pray, and cry aloud:
and he shall hear my voice.

Psalm 55: 17

“like a tree planted by the rivers”

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
