Spring gardens
return to life

Thoughts Of A Friend

Thoughts of a friend
Who always loved and grew
I wonder . . . Has the sky
ever been this beautiful a blue?

beauty, joy, praise

…to give unto them

beauty for ashes,

the oil of joy for mourning,

the garment of praise

for the spirit of heaviness…

from Isaiah 61: 3 (KJV)

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
