Daily Prompt and Poems

Write about your dream home.

Daily writing prompt

A place, a small study, a garden, books, blogs . . . this time. Prayers.

clouds and blue sky
snow on spruce tree branches
near Lake Michigan

reading Psalms
in the sunroom
fragrance of daffodils

another summer
art on the wall
by someone
long ago still
speaks to me

Thy statutes have been my songs
in the house of my pilgrimage.

Psalm 119: 54 (KJV)

“another summer” was published on June 6, 2022, by Scarlet Dragonfly Journal A Daily Journal of Japanese Short-Form Poetry, edited by Kathleen Trocmet.

First Day Here

Tell us about your first day at something — school, work, as a parent, etc.

Daily Prompt

Karl helped me begin Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin on December 19, 2009. One of my goals was to reprint some of my poems from print journals, and thank the editors and publishers. Now my poems have also been published by editors and sites online, and print books (anthologies).

The blog is a way to practice, and growth happens over time. One post at a time!

writing and reading
I don’t see the dust

then seeing
I remember

and know He does not forget

and understands
with Love

Psalm 103: 14 (KJV)

For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth we are dust.
