two tulips grow

two tulips grow
where the garden
was cleared

we did not plant them

how many years did
they try to grow?

this is their year

and the old hedge
grows again too

The Psalms and Hope

As I read through the Psalms for my series at Poems From Psalms And Nature, I remember verses that are familiar.

Two examples:

They go from strength to strength . . .

From Psalm 84: 7 – Post for Psalm 84

. . . all my springs are in thee.

From Psalm 87: 7 – Post for Psalm 87

Please visit Poems From Psalms And Nature if you wish to read or view more posts. I select a variety of images for the posts.

morning work
in the kitchen
new primroses
and daffodils continue
past the rain

April afternoon

April afternoon
a month in Wisconsin
that is not winter
yet not really spring

a bright green cloth bag
holds my library books
until the day we can
return them

they are fine where they are
for as long as necessary
there must be library books
in so many homes

another good connection
to community
and so true that books
are friends as well
