Three Poems

cup of coffee
by the water
this day to God

*

AUTUMN GRACE

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace

*

September
on the horizon
all the goals
I can still
try to reach

*

AUTUMN GRACE was published in Bell’s Letters Poet, WestWard Quarterly, and SMILE.

Ellen Grace Olinger

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

August 2014

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
