short summer poems

summer morning
green plants in sun
on Grace’s straw chest

For my grandmother Grace

Haiku Art Site and Grief And Acceptance

summer evening
quiet music and
a few Psalms
new evergreen growth
still in the sun

The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)

hummingbird
and hosta flowers
by the windows
in the sunroom
stillness

POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN

“my songs”

Thy statutes
have been my songs
in the house of my pilgrimage.

Psalm 119: 54 (KJV)

Bridal Wreath near Lake Michigan

A butterfly found the hawkweed in the front yard.

I took this photo of flowers from a store.
