Bloganuary prompt for January 14, 2022

Write about a challenge you faced and overcame.

taking turns
letting each other go
only to learn again
how love grows,
Mother

love for you
became her care
until she joined you there
grief gives way to fields and wind
and now I hear your voice again

P  romises of
S  erenity
A  nd
 ove
M editations and
 trength

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 27: 14

Poems to follow my post, Bloganuary prompt for January 13, 2022.

blue sky and sun
shadows of spruce tree
on snow-covered yard

raindrops
robin in a daylily
garden

lasting a long time
daffodils planted
in loving memory

one red tulip
blooms in the hosta border
time alone with God

reading poetry
in the garden
summer school

Free Flower Border Image – Reusable Art

From my archives:

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

treasures stored
here and there
homemade chapbooks

books on the shelf
supported by each other
kindness of friends

new day
in my older life
sun on evergreens

“peaceful morning” was published in Bundled Wildflowers, Haiku Society of America 2020 Members’ Anthology. Bryan Rickert, Editor.

What emoji(s) do you like to use?

I like how the prompts and questions vary. Thank you to the editors at WordPress.com. This question is one I am not qualified to answer!

Then I thought some vintage images from Reusable Art – Breathing New Life Into Old Art would create a nice post today. You can learn more at Reusable Art. The content at the site goes back to the 1300s. There are many categories.
