Meditation: Peace

I watch or read the news. And many hours of the day I read, pray, create, look for beauty. A lot of time with blogs. Simple work at home. There are snowdrops in the garden. Earlier this year, Karl did a lot of work in the yard, on warm days. There is new space for daylilies and hosta to grow.

winter storm Sunday

winter storm Sunday
a day to read poems
and enjoy the images,
language, and craft
with my heart

Today – and the following poems are from a past Spring. They were published together on one page in Time Of Singing.

Holy Week
lily flowers
wait to bloom

sometimes by sight
in my life of faith
apple trees in bloom

trusting God
a little more
with my questions
fog rests
on Spring fields

Time Of Singing
Volume 41, Number 1
Spring 2014

Poems are by Ellen Grace Olinger.

Happy New Year

We are grateful for all the readers, from so many countries, who visit the blog. Thank you and blessings for the New Year and always.
