Poems From Psalms And Nature: Posts and Pages

My second site is Poems From Psalms And Nature (since July 2010). I have been working to review our series from March 2020 – July 2020. These posts are short selections from the 150 Psalms, with art by many people.

Thoughts, prayers, poems . . .

If you are interested, these are my two recent posts, and you can read/view more from there. My goal is to offer a few moments of beauty and hope.

Acrostic For NOVEMBER – November 1, 2011

sitting at my blog
grateful for friends
first snowflakes
gently fall
and rest on the roof

snowflakes (it’s true) – November 12, 2012

earth turned over
in winter fields
yet new green grows –
Christmas wreaths

earth turned over – November 25, 2012

grey beautiful sky
evergreen trees
and short days
soon to be decorated
with holiday lights

two short poems – November 4, 2013

November day
one small flower
in the garden

November day – November 9, 2015

small evergreen branch
apart from its tree
caught by and adding green
to a birch tree branch
with few gold leaves

small evergreen branch – November 10, 2015

snowflakes
floating in the air
separate
together
artists
across places
and time

Classic Book

WinterSong: Christmas Readings by Madeleine L’Engle and Luci Shaw is a beautiful book.

The hardcover edition was published in 1996 by Harold Shaw Publishers (Wheaton, Illinois). I also have the paperback version that was published by Regent College Publishing (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada).

WinterSong is a classic now, and I enjoy rereading some selections each year.
