Lilacs: Four Poems

Karen’s Whimsy

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind

memories of neighbors
and their gardens
lilacs

knowing
they cannot stay
but will return
lilacs

ancient lilacs
cover the graves

Do you have a quote you live your life by or think of often?

The Psalms have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

This is a haiku from July 24, 2012, and other posts over the years.

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).

Blue sky and trees

Blue sky and trees are the view from my study this morning. I read a few Psalms and listen for sounds of spring in the neighborhood. And then write a poem.

early morning
time to sit and watch
the light begin
cook breakfast
and wash the dishes
pray a few Psalms
along with many
near and far and
unseen by me
we pray together
