Psalm 42 and haiku

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts:
all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness
in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me,

and my prayer unto the God of my life.

Psalm 42: 7 – 8

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* As you can see, the first line of my haiku is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV). I wrote this poem some time ago.

raindrops
on hosta plants

so beautiful
with and without
flowers

their leaves
in the sun

quiet grey morning
all the books
I hope to read

quiet grey morning
a page or two
and the restful view

rain and wind
flower petals
on the wood porch

local corn
and soybean fields
turning gold
wildflowers
in the yard
and along the roads
September
