raindrops on windows
I remember how Helen Keller
learned water

This version appeared in another journal:

reading poems aloud
raindrops on the windows

Helen Keller
learned “water”

I appreciate the ideas of editors and publishers. And I remember the moment that inspired the poems!

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
