through yellow maple leaves
the mercy of God

Perhaps

perhaps
we know
we have found
our home

when the same
sights touch
our hearts deeply
year after year

Queen Anne’s Lace
and warm August
days, gardens,
and fields

Petals On Wood

PETALS ON WOOD

The day lilies in the vase
Are ending

Petals drop on wood

I leave them
They express something poignant

That words never could.

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.
