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:

Three Poems

Monday
and planning
the week
what will grow
what should rest

WestWard Quarterly – Fall, 2016

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace

Over time: Bell’s Letters Poet, SMILE, and WestWard Quarterly

fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older

and I remember

rarely at your grave —
geranium blooms freely
on your workshop stool

autumn leaves
the caregiver finds time
to rest
