*

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

Spring gardens
return to life
forgiveness

roots in His Word
I will flower

Sunday afternoon
rereading
Gospel accounts
of His Resurrection
imagine being there
