How do you show love?

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

PSALMS

The Psalms have been with me for as long as I can remember. I wrote the acrostic in 2010.

November

As beautiful
as the other months are

and I think of daffodils and
daylilies, and October leaves

there is a special beauty
in November

just now forsythia leaves
are green-yellow, near the
yellow chrysanthemum
on a green chair, and the
old cedar tree and garage

The Psalms

I pray the Psalms for peace. I look at my blog and am grateful for readers from many countries. And posts from many countries. My father and others in our families were/are veterans. In 1978, I went to Poland with my father. This was for almost a month, with a formal group from UW-Milwaukee. For new readers, and all readers, one of our sites is POEMS FROM PSALMS AND NATURE. It amazes me, through decades of life so far, how the Psalms offer hope. When I am overwhelmed, this practice of contemplative prayer is a source of strength.
