Spring will return: large print

Spring will return
here and there
and then I’ll say,
“When did this happen?”

Today, though,
I rest in longer light
on evergreens
in a tiny bit of wind

Haiku and Photos

I read a Psalm and
listen to the green *
my heart rests

* Listen to the Green, by Luci Shaw, is a favorite book.

Haiku by Ellen Grace Olinger – all the colors of the seasons.

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is a book that we published with Time of Singing poetry journal. I reread the book recently, and the poems are strong and timeless.

Lora Homan Zill and I served as the Editors. Charles A. Waugaman was the Art Editor and Illustrator.

The book includes poems by many poets. With the universal themes of faith and hope, the book continues to be a beautiful work of art.

The book can be ordered from The Blue Collar Artist Time of Singing. All proceeds benefit Time of Singing. You can also learn more about Time of Singing “quarterly Christian poetry journal from Wind & Water Press.”
