I remember prayers
The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press).
My haiku was first published at this site on May 16, 2012.
Karl and I reprinted the poem in Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014), which is both a site and large print chapbook.
Our book can be ordered from Time of Singing poetry journal, edited by Lora Homan Zill (Wind & Water Press).

While I live will I praise the LORD:
I will sing praises unto my God
while I have any being.
Psalm 146: 2
Except the LORD build the house,
they labour in vain that build it:
except the LORD keep the city,
the watchman waketh but in vain.
Psalm 127: 1
As I reprint verses from the Psalms, and proofread the posts, I learn more about the language arts.
For example, yesterday’s post:
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
Psalm 126: 5
There is comfort, emotional and spiritual.
Then I also think, “What a beautiful sentence.”

M editations and

And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us:
and establish thou the work of our hands upon us;
yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
Psalm 90: 17
Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee,
that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
Psalm 60: 4
