how quickly
another generation
grows
seems I only
looked away
for a moment

how good their work
how beautiful their art

Photos, Memories, New Poems

photos of sunflowers
the field on the way home
from my mother’s home
years and years ago
gave me strength

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18: 1

My poem is from a new sequence at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin:
August days go by.

Another idea is a haiku or two – perhaps writing prompts for a poetry lesson. With a general beginning, writers can add their own images and reflections. I was viewing photos at the WordPress.com free photo library.

Poems From Psalms And Nature

There are words and phrases from our Psalms series that stay with me, and that I hope to include in new poems, with references.

Mercy – “for his mercy endureth for ever”

Psalm 136

Lovingkindness – “Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning”

Psalm 143

before dawn

bird songs
in the yard
through an open
kitchen window

and I remember
to hear His
lovingkindness
in
the morning

and I pray

may there be
mercy, love, and
kindness
in my heart
all day
