trees

the green that goes
the green that stays
evergreens

trees with leaves
and Fall colors
and then their
shapes and sky

trees with holiday
lights in Winter

and trees
with blossoms
and new leaves
in Spring

From 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

Holy Week

Holy week
lily flowers
wait to bloom

sometimes by sight
in my life of faith
apple trees in bloom

Poems From Psalms And Nature: 2020 Series Review

At Poems From Psalms And Nature, I am working to review our series from March 2020 – July 2020. These posts are short selections from the 150 Psalms, with art by many people. I also post some of my poems and reflections.

If you are interested, these are my two recent posts, and you can read/view more from there. My goal is to offer a few moments of beauty and hope.

Poems From Psalms And Nature: July 2010 to the present

I began Poems From Psalms And Nature on July 18, 2010.

My first post was Psalm 46 Be Still . . .

Be still, and know
that I am God

Psalm 46: 10a (KJV)

Native Plants was from July 27, 2010.

One of my goals with Journal Notes Blog is to review my work so far, including my handwritten journals. I also enjoy learning about design from WordPress.com, and trying different themes. The Psalms and nature are a part of my daily life.

A new image, and/or a different design, can give an old poem new life. There are many readers. A poem familiar to one person is new for another. I know I enjoy rereading poetry.

Poems written over time may form a book. Quiet Christmas Poetry is both a large print chapbook and free site.

And I always feel that I am just beginning, and I love to learn. Art grows over time. I have found that my blogs lead to practice and poems. And when I have needed to rest more, that is good as well. The years and seasons vary. Grateful.
