small gifts

cup from a thrift store
on my grandmother’s
straw chest
near the window
fills with light

summer sun
thrift store bowl painted
with leaves and fruit

strawberries
on tiny vase
from a thrift store
God’s special gift
for me today

The tiny vase was from Bethesda Thrift Shop in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Watching A Barge

watching a barge
slowly travel
through deep waters
at sunrise
life of faith
