Summer 2022

This post is reprinted here, from new posts at POEMS FROM PSALMS AND NATURE.

July is when our daylilies bloom. Old perennial plants that are new every year. There are so many good books to read. I look at the perennials and think about what lasts and blesses readers over time.

I appreciate book reviews and am reading from a few books I learned about from Time of Singing poetry journal.

We also enjoy donating poetry journals and books to thrift stores. Perhaps someone may discover poetry and write a poem!

My Summer Reading Plan this year is to read from my small home library. Then in the Fall I will look at some new books as well. And of course my plan can be adjusted – just a way to think about summer this year.

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.
