Deep calleth unto deep … *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV)

dragonfly rests
for a moment
on the tree branch
long enough for me
to see each wing

wildflowers grow
by fields of corn
words of poetry
uplift my soul
keep me strong

Queen Anne’s Lace
along the roads
missing my mother
she somehow
seems near

strength for the iris
while waiting to bloom
daylily

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

morning music
bird songs more present
than sounds from the highway

as I create a post
and prepare to publish
I see the themes
of my life so far

art, beauty, creativity, encouragement, faith, flowers, gratitude, grief, health, hope, love, nature, poetry, seasons. . .

July

time
of daylilies and hosta
July

flowers
begin to form
early July

with all the ways
life can change
still they bloom
every year
daylilies and hosta

my old sweater
worn thin

Summer

trees have grown
and summer is here
the view where I read
is more green than sky

perennial gardens
grow well with rain
and sun and time

as if always this way
a summer day
