Create With Blogs – 3

Over the years, I learn about post design. I like how the WordPress Block Editor works with my short poems.

small home library
books and journals
to read at different times
some to reread
and some to give away

small flowers
close to the ground
many ways to grow

Create With Blogs

As I learn how to create with blogs, I try some different ideas with posts. Now as I print and reprint, I use the “SIZE MEDIUM” Typography (and as I grow older).

For our series in 2020, I quoted from the King James Version. Over the years, I have read from different Bible translations. Sometimes I vary how I present verses. This is an example. Thank you and blessings.

From Psalm 20

The LORD hear thee
in the day
of trouble . . .

Grant thee
according to
thine own heart,

and fulfill all
thy counsel.

Psalm 20: 1a, 4


trees and prayers

looking at trees
I remember prayers

My haiku was published at Poems From Psalms And Nature on May 16, 2012. Reprinted in the book, The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press).

Karl and I also reprinted the poem in Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014).

History of a Poem

At POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN, I am reviewing some posts.

Some of the poems I wrote for my blogs have been published over the years in journals and books.

I thought History of a Poem would be a good way to present my current review and posts – perhaps a small book in the next year or two. Thank you.
