for a few moments

for a few moments
as I pray and read
early sunlight
on birch trees
and a grey-blue sky

POEM

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

October 2018 begins with rain and wind.  A good day for blogs and books.

Memoirs

I enjoy reading memoirs.

Cynthia Reyes – the blog of Canadian author Cynthia Reyes – wrote A Good Home: A Memoir and An Honest House: A Memoir, Continued.  I reread both books this year, and you can learn more at her site.

Luci Shaw is another author I reread, her poetry and prose.  God in the Dark: Through Grief and Beyond is a classic.  Adventure of Ascent: Field Notes from a Lifelong Journey is another generous book.  Luci’s official website has more information; see the All Titles page.  She also has a page for New Releases.

and then the view
