From Psalm 104

Psalm 104: 1 – 2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul.  O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain”

This is the poetry of the King James Version.

Short Poems for July

recollections
of summers gone by
voices on the breeze

From 2012

*

country cemetery
trumpet vines
growing taller
than the gravestones

Time Of Singing
Summer 2012

*

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

From 2015

*

loved for years
and now I know your name
blue chicory

“loved for years” was reprinted by Charlotte Digregorio for the Daily Haiku: May 27, 2017.

as birds quietly sing

losses in life
low setting sun
through branches of trees
now rises again
as birds quietly sing

(Sunset . . . Sunrise from Poems From Psalms And Nature, 2010).

Psalm 1: 3 (KJV) :

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

*

patterns on my floor
moving with the breeze
sun from the West
highlights
branches of leaves

early morning

morning coffee
with pink clouds
floating in sky
pink lilies on the table
bloom in reply

(from June 2012)
