morning light
forms part of a cross
on the wood wall
my faith completes
the picture


country graves
silk flowers bloom
by the stones


weathered trees
strong and beautiful
my time of healing


Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5: 4 (KJV)

roots in His Word
I will flower
again and again

a small card

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

Evergreen Trees

evergreen trees
with their branches
in May winds
through another
winter and green
and growing


some broken branches

interesting shapes

shelter for birds

the years show
and they are
beautiful as
they bless
