heart with hope

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* The first line of my poem is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV).

Three Poems

PRAYING THE PSALMS

praying the Psalms
and reading poetry
books and journals
I write new poems
about everyday life

HAIKU

time to read
wind and shadows
on evergreens

BOOKS ON THE SHELVES

books on the shelves
from many years
new books and old
from thrift stores
and discarded by libraries

looking at the books
as I sit and write
gives me peace
and books by my chair
in my small study

I do not need to teach
from the books, or even
read them on any schedule,
they are my books now
and they give me peace

Poems by Ellen Grace Olinger

books

there was a time
when the book
did not exist

perhaps in the
writer’s heart and
mind

yet still the process
to create for others
to read in some form

there was a time
when the reader
did not know

the book exists
yet once found
is read and reread

treasured forever
among many books
