Two Poems

clouds with some blue
outside my study window
some days God seems so clear
other days I must dwell more deeply
in my reading of the Psalms

*

writing and reading
I don’t see the dust

then seeing
I remember

and know He does not forget
and understands

with Love

Psalm 103: 14 (KJV)
For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth we are dust.

my large print Bible
rests on the Thanksgiving tray
the bread of life

late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

*

John 6: 35 (KJV):  And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life:  he that cometh to me shall never hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

We’ve had a lot of rain.

Yesterday I went to Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  I had not been there for a time.  They had a large selection of used books for sale.  I bought two poetry books, for less than one dollar.  Lilacs were in bloom along the roads.

Then I stopped at Arby’s in Kohler.  A young person held the door for me, and people were so kind.  I am older now.  I enjoyed a salad, and brought a cup of coffee home.

R  ose clouds at sunrise, and the day
O  pens to songs, silence, and new
S  trength, with hope
E  verlasting

Our pink peonies will bloom soon.  My parents had red, white, and pink peonies in their yard.
