answers to prayers
I did not know to pray . . .
verses of Psalms

Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
Psalm 25:1 (KJV)

from May 2012

For my review, now I plan to simply go through my archives, one month at a time. I can copy and paste old posts that I would like to share again. I like the new Gutenberg editor a lot, which gives older work a new life as well.

Blogs are a great way to organize our work. They have also become a journal for me. When did the peonies bloom last year? Did I post this poem before? I can see my heart in this poem, and perhaps could write it better now.

favorite old poem

IT IS IMPORTANT

To have a vision
to sustain the effort
to see it all the way
through – –

Even when it seems
to leave you

It Is Important was published first in Time Of Singing. The poem has found many homes.

I included this poem in my first chapbook, And So My Soul (2001, out of print).
