2021 Series at Poems From Psalms And Nature

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.

Today’s post is Poetry Book by Madeleine L’Engle, which also lists the posts so far in the series.

We live in Wisconsin – the Midwest, USA. And I buy used books from other places online, as well as places in our area. So many good deeds, and books are shared with more people. Wonderful.

Haiku by Carol Purington

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
and back

The first hymn –
we sing our way
into harmony

Prayer before soup
we unclasp our hands
to break bread

Driving away
whether or not to go home
by the usual road
