Photos, Memories, New Poems

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

You may also wish to visit Poems For Bulletin Boards. I enjoy the different WordPress.com themes, and presenting poems in different ways. Readers are welcome to use my poems in their lessons and art, with proper credit (my name and the blog).

Thank you,

Creative Note and Poems

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.”
