sunny morning with no wind the quiet image of orange daylilies in bloom
early morning hosta flowers grow above the windowsill
Saturday morning so happy with the plants we bought on sale
early Sunday raindrops in some light on evergreen branches
one yellow leaf on the birch tree late July
Creative Note: My poems were published first at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin. I am writing short poems to describe moments as they happen. Later I may see a sequence and then reprint in one post.

Creative Note: I am reading a used book I bought from Amazon: Sightseers into Pilgrims, A Sampler of Contemporary Christian Poets. Edited, and with an Introduction by Luci Shaw. Copyright 1973 by Tyndale House Publishers, Wheaton, Illinois. Excellent poems, and I have also read Luci Shaw’s books of poetry and memoirs for many years. I enjoy both new and used books, and also look for discards from libraries when I order. I like seeing where the book was and the library information. A book from a thrift store may include a gift note. How wonderful to consider the journey of a book!
Each month, I try to review some of the past posts and years in my archives. Today I am looking at July 2010, as that is when I began Poems From Psalms And Nature. When the time arrives to create a new book or two from my blogs, I think the review work will already be complete. I update my archives here and there too.
Be still, and know that I am God
Psalm 46: 10a (KJV)
each flower a star for a time daylilies
patterns on my floor moving with the breeze sun from the West highlights branches of leaves
