*

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

Heal

Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows . . .

Isaiah 53: 4a (KJV)

*

country graves
silk flowers bloom
by the stones

childhood memories
of singing in the choir
Palm Sunday

colorful tulips
on a cold day
unconditional love
