Inspiration and Revision

reading a Psalm . . .
listen to the green
and my heart is at peace

* Listen to the Green, by Luci Shaw, is a favorite book.

This is reprinted from the post at Poems For Bulletin Boards, with images from wpclipart (education and art site – a wide variety of images). My post might be an idea for National Poetry Month and Earth Day (April 22). Students can share favorite authors. My haiku is a thank you note, and models credit for inspiration. I read every book by Luci Shaw, and there are many over decades. I deleted my reblog of the same post earlier this week.

I reblog often, and also update posts and designs. I learn a lot from WordPress.com and am grateful. I can try new ideas, and revise. I often review my archives and reprint in new ways.

Yesterday I wrote another version of my poem at Poems From Psalms And Nature, with images from the WordPress.com free photo library. This post is Haiku and Photos.

I read a Psalm and
listen to the green *
my heart rests

Listen to the Green, by Luci Shaw, is a favorite book.

This version also reflects my health journey. I am grateful for my Care Team and progress. Blogs are flexible and work well for me.

Beauty – Luci Shaw

“Each of us is called to cultivate beauty, knowing that as artists, and as those with whom we share our creative gifts, we become more whole and healed in that sharing of beauty.”
