At Poems From Psalms And Nature, I began a new series on the theme of Mercy and Gratitude, which will feature my poems inspired by thrift stores, with links to the store sites. And creative notes in general.
Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in needis a book that we published with Time of Singing poetry journal. I reread the book recently, and the poems are strong and timeless.
Lora Homan Zill and I served as the Editors. Charles A. Waugaman was the Art Editor and Illustrator.
The book includes poems by many poets. With the universal themes of faith and hope, the book continues to be a beautiful work of art.
The book can be ordered from The Blue Collar Artist Time of Singing. All proceeds benefit Time of Singing. You can also learn more about Time of Singing “quarterly Christian poetry journal from Wind & Water Press.”

Time of Singing poetry journal, edited by Lora Zill, has a new site. This print journal was one of the first to publish my poems, and I am grateful. Today I am reading the Winter 2020/21 issue (Volume 47, Number 3).
Here is an early poem.
birds perch in sheltering branches a grain of mustard seed
Matthew 13: 31–32 inspired my poem. Published by Time of Singing (1995).
