on my desk —
bleeding hearts in bloom

birds perch
in sheltering branches
a grain of mustard seed

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.

Bloganuary prompt for January 17, 2022

What is a superpower you’d love to have?

birds perch
in sheltering branches
a grain of mustard seed

Matthew 13: 31 – 32

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

morning prayer
water birds flying north
stay close to water

breakfast and music
when a song begins
I know the words
Amazing Grace

far from perfect
and in need of grace
we found our way
to unconditional love

“birds perch” was published in Time Of Singing (1995).

“morning prayer” was published in Take-out Window: Haiku Society of America 2014 Members’ Anthology, edited by Gary Hotham. My haiku was first published in SMILE, 67, 2010.
