Psalm 145 and poems

Every day will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Psalm 145: 2

These are some of my poems about the beauty of everyday life.

new year sunrise
light fills
the red poinsettia

branches viewed
in the corner windows
beloved old tree

May sunrise
a few more flowers
on the Christmas cactus

Sunday afternoon
I know the time
by the light

summer evening
light fills the evergreens
with old and new growth

reading poems
from years ago
perennials grow

mid-July
daylilies and hosta
tell the time

frost soon –
cutting flowers
generously

rereading Psalms
colors of leaves
a deeper gold

roots in His Word
I will flower again

Psalm 122, photos and poems

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

These are two poems that I posted before. Over time, I am learning the poems for a new book, with Karl’s photos. It is interesting to see which poems work well in different posts, and that I remember easily. Sometimes I rediscover poems in my archives.

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

“Peace be within thy walls.”

Psalm 117

O praise the LORD, all ye nations:
praise him, all ye people.

For his merciful kindness is great toward us:
and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever.
Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 117
