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
