As I was praying this morning, I thought I’d read the Psalms again. I read from various English translations. I thought I would simply post a verse or two here from many Psalms. And I’ll add a picture. For this series, I will quote from the King James Version. My goal is to offer some moments of rest, beauty, and hope.
My work with short poems also inspired how I presented these posts.

time with the Psalms a dove on the branch pictures a poem
And I will continue to write about books I am reading and rereading this Winter.
I am also sharing from Bloganuary posts here at the Psalms and Nature site. Thank you.
Visiting The Wind: The Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology 2021, edited by Erin Castaldi, arrived this past week. I look forward to reading and sharing more about the book. The Cover Design is by Tiffany Shaw-Diaz and Erin Castaldi. I always enjoy learning about artists who are new for me from cover art for books and journals.
Yesterday, I was happy to receive A Moment’s Longing, Haiku Society ofAmerica Members’ Anthology 2019. Tanya McDonald served as our Editor this year. The book is beautiful. Please visit the Haiku Society of America for more information.
My poem in the book:
one red tulip blooms in the hosta border time alone with God
The new issue of The Heron’s Nest is online. “where tradition and innovation meet and complement each other”
John Stevenson is Managing Editor of this haiku journal. I have been reading there for some time. Please see How to Submit for more information, and the names of the Associate Editors. Guidelines among journals vary, so be sure to read and follow each journal’s rules, if you wish to offer work for review. First step is to read!
I enjoy reading print books/journals too, and like The Heron’s Nest Annual Editions. I am still reading Volume 19 for 2017, and placed an advance order for the new edition for 2018.
