Meditation: Books and Journals

I look at the books and journals in our home and am grateful. There is a wide selection: poetry, memoirs, novels, books discarded by libraries, books from thrift stores, books given as gifts. Poets I’ve read for decades, and new poets in journals and who post on their blogs.

Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings, by Joni Mitchell, was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2019; and is a beautiful book. She wrote a forward in May 2019. And she is as grateful as ever.

Poetry called to me from the Psalms, and the hymns, from church. Then when I was young I heard Joni Mitchell, and other artists. I could write too!

sun fills a bookcase

March sunrise
shadows of trees

garage painting (in words)

Yesterday, while working at the kitchen sink, I looked out the window and saw a beautiful image:

some moss on the side of the cedar garage
with a cedar tree nearby
light was shining there
with the shapes of the tree branches
amidst the green
