on Spring fields

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

To everything there is a season,

for as long
as I can remember
the wonder of books

good to create
when we can
sometimes more
sometimes less
every year different

Bible on my shelf
a ribbon holds my place
in the Psalms

reading a Psalm . . .
I listen to the green
and my heart is at peace

Listen to the Green is an early book by Luci Shaw.

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

silk flowers bloom
by the stones

He is not here; for he is risen, as he said.

Matthew 28: 6a (KJV)

old and new
memories grow together
Spring flowers and trees

sometimes by sight
in my life of faith
apple trees in bloom

sometimes by sight was published by Time of Singing, Spring 2014.
