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.

Published in SMILE (Spring 2011).

late afternoon sun
shines into my little
study longer
another Spring
is given

a new river of
poems begins to flow
as I grow older
still reading by natural light
late afternoon sun

EASTER DINNER

for my mother

The background is red
her hair has become silver
and her dress is rust.
Her smile these days is pure gold
and her eyes sparkle anew.

Published first in Time of Singing, 1993.

And I will add this poem from January 2016.

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