Carol enjoyed the blogs and sharing her work with many readers. This is a post we created at Haiku Art Site for October 28, 2015.
Before the service –
an oriole carries my thoughts to God
The first hymn –
we sing our way
Prayer before soup
we unclasp our hands
to break bread
whether or not to go home
by the usual road

The Psalms Series 2020: A Summary is a new post at Poems From Psalms And Nature.
Here is part of what I wrote:
“The Psalms series this year is one of the projects I think of first, as I reflect upon 2020. The idea was simple: post short selections from the 150 Psalms, with pictures. I worked with the King James Version of the Bible. My study of short poetry forms inspired my presentation for some of the verses.
My thought was that readers can do their own research from here, if they wish. I did not assume that someone already knew the Psalms.
The series was from March 2020 – July 2020. This fall, I worked to summarize the content in different ways.”
Then the post includes the various ways I tried to summarize the series.
God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.
Psalm 67: 1 – 2
