Psalm 122, photos and poems

Peace be within thy walls,
and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions’ sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek thy good.

Psalm 122: 7 – 9

These are two poems that I posted before. Over time, I am learning the poems for a new book, with Karl’s photos. It is interesting to see which poems work well in different posts, and that I remember easily. Sometimes I rediscover poems in my archives.

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

“Peace be within thy walls.”
