Easter And Spring Poetry

old and new
memories grow together
Spring flowers and trees

lily of the valley
fragrance of forgiveness
memories of love

losses in life
low setting sun
through branches of trees
now rises again
as birds quietly sing

Sunday rest
prayers and gifts
of Winter with
new hope
for Spring

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

Poem Inspired by Psalm 103

writing and reading
I don’t see the dust . . .
then seeing I remember

and know He does not forget

and understands with Love

For he knoweth our frame;
he remembereth we are dust.

Psalm 103: 14 (KJV)

Psalm 1

And he shall be like a tree
planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1: 3 (KJV)

March begins
shape of sun on my desk
a placemat for my lamp

near the garage
on a cold March day
bird songs

soon the garden
will begin in small ways
snowdrops
