quiet hours

quiet hours
of reading
before dawn

reflection
of a lamp
in the window

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Psalm 119:105 (KJV)

many times

many times
I thought life
would go a certain way
and then it went
another way

yet I pray the Psalms
read poems by
many writers
and work around
the house

look forward
to how the light falls
this time of year
trust in a wiser
and deeper plan

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

Psalm 18:1 (KJV)

Poem today by Ellen Grace Olinger

light

old garage
in morning light
view from kitchen window

today

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

two poems

Two poems from my archives that I remembered yesterday:

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan today
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

wearing
my old sweater
worn thin
Queen Anne’s lace
along country roads

Poems and Photos

two red tulips
lean towards sun
perennial friends

new thoughts
and old memories
first hummingbird
of the year
finds lilacs
