robin in a daylily

after rain
the beautiful earth
and gardens grow

grey sky
mourning dove
on a birch tree branch

time with the Psalms
a dove on the branch
pictures a poem

early May
robin visits
the cedar tree

warm Saturday
in early May
windows open

May morning
near the garage

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

Reflections: The Psalms

As I pray the Psalms for my series at Poems From Psalms And Nature, I continue to be grateful. Creative at home.

From my post for Psalm 57:

Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me:
for my soul trusteth in thee:
yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge,
until these calamities be overpast.

I am reprinting from the King James Version for this series. I select a variety of images for the posts, and sometimes I share one of my short poems.
