reading poems aloud
raindrops on windows
I remember how Helen Keller
learned water

This version appeared in another journal:

reading poems aloud
raindrops on the windows
reminds me how
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
