poem and photos

Yesterday, I rediscovered this poem.

rain today
how soon we reach
the end of what we know
and how deep
faith continues to grow

I took this photo in 2015.  I like how the daylilies are bowed to the ground – beauty, grace, humility.

This was the last daylily in 2015.  The next photo shows how the lilies are growing this year.

I love seeing how the light changes in the garden through the days and seasons.  Praying the Psalms, everyday beauty, being creative in small ways – all last, have held true for decades.  I have also needed to learn flexibility, with health challenges and losses.  I hope to write more about this topic, in a quiet and devotional way.   I think of my photos as haiku photos – they express a moment, and the seasons are classic.

a star for a time

Thank you
