Two Poems

today the sun shines

today the sun shines
after much rain
and I think about
art on the walls
and arrangements
how shapes and colors
work together

and also spaces
with nothing more
like a new journal
or blog post
a page of paper
what may yet
be created?

POEMS FROM PSALMS AND NATURE

Ellen Grace Olinger

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is 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.

Creative Note: Psalms And Nature

Yesterday, we completed the series at my site, Poems From Psalms And Nature.

Here are posts from that site with some of my thoughts about this work.

The Psalms – I wrote this post as I reflected upon the series, to let readers know we were reaching the last Psalm.

There are 150 Psalms, so our current series is almost complete – and only a small beginning.

The Psalms are a part of my life. Perhaps you know them well, and perhaps they are new for some readers.

Psalm 150 – I mentioned that “New readers may be interested to read New Series From The Psalms (March 17, 2020).”
