Inspiration: Snowdrops

What a good year for the snowdrops. They grow and endure, and return each year. The first flowers in our yard. They picture a kind word, a small poem, everyday blessings. A post in my Reader, a devotional book from a thrift store, and a small plant by the window. I do not know when they first grew and bloomed in the gardens, and we have been here a long time.

Three Haiku by Carol Purington

Carol enjoyed sharing her poetry in many ways. This is a post we created at Haiku Art Site for January 27, 2016.

Snowflakes falling
on my head and on yours
we are not strangers

Prayer before soup
we unclasp our hands
to break bread

Leafless tree
its branches full
of setting sun

Inspiration

sun and moon

I often write about the sunrises over Lake Michigan. Yesterday, I saw the moon through the smaller window above my printer, as I completed my time here for the day.

Today, I thought there must be verses from the Psalms with the sun and moon. I found a past post at my site, Poems From Psalms And Nature.

Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

These verses are from Psalm 148: 1-3 (KJV).
