summer evening

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)

What is your favorite quote and why?

God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.

Psalm 67: 1 – 2

“thy saving health among all nations”

Bloganuary prompt for January 21, 2022

If you could, what year would you time travel to and why?

An interesting question – and I am happy here, and grateful for this day.

“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time…”

From Ecclesiastes 3:11a (KJV)

This Bible verse is the overall theme for my Gravatar and Websites. I enjoy trying different blog themes, and I reprint poems in different ways. And I also reblog posts. Grateful for all the ways to create and share.

Yesterday, I began reviewing our Easter and Spring Poetry site. This year, I decided to reprint poems that readers seem to especially like in large bold print, with different images. As I work, I often write new poems.

Heart Poems

Poems to follow my Bloganuary: January 8, 2022 post.

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* The first line of my poem is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV).

another year
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too

tiny leaves
on trees
no prayer
in my heart
too small for God

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

“tiny leaves” is from my blog and reprinted last year:

REST

Matthew 11: 28 (KJV): “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

I am reprinting the acrostic poem and Bible verse from March 21, 2010. Grateful and interesting to see older posts that are still viewed. The 2010 post includes a lily photo by Karl. I rediscovered acrostic poems with blogs.
