Poems and Prayers

I am reviewing the poems I have published here so far, and creating a few posts around a theme. Poems relates to the language arts. My second post in this series is Poems and Seasons.


P  romises of

reading Psalms
more beauty and
comfort every year

morning light
forms part of a cross
on the wood wall
my faith completes
the picture

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* The first line of my poem is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV).

praying the Psalms
and reading poetry
books and journals
I write new poems
about everyday life

Psalms to pray
and poems to read
sun on seawalls

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 27: 14

“Psalms to pray” was published in Dawn Returns The Haiku Society of America 2022 Members’ Anthology. John J. Han, Editor. Haiku Society of America, New York.

In my previous post, Poems, I published a sequence of poems that relate to the language arts. For this post, I am working with the theme of seasons.
