Psalm 145 and poems

Every day will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Psalm 145: 2

These are some of my poems about the beauty of everyday life.

new year sunrise
light fills
the red poinsettia

branches viewed
in the corner windows
beloved old tree

May sunrise
a few more flowers
on the Christmas cactus

Sunday afternoon
I know the time
by the light

summer evening
light fills the evergreens
with old and new growth

reading poems
from years ago
perennials grow

mid-July
daylilies and hosta
tell the time

frost soon –
cutting flowers
generously

rereading Psalms
colors of leaves
a deeper gold

roots in His Word
I will flower again

Psalm 129

The LORD is righteous . . .

From Psalm 129: 4

The Psalms are honest about history, afflictions, and hope.

And now, Lord,
what wait I for?
my hope is in thee.

Psalm 39: 7 April 8, 2020

where once
I mourned
irises
