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

Time of Singing poetry journal

Time of Singing poetry journal, edited by Lora Zill, has a new site. This print journal was one of the first to publish my poems, and I am grateful. Today I am reading the Winter 2020/21 issue (Volume 47, Number 3).

Here is an early poem.

birds perch
in sheltering branches
a grain of mustard seed

Matthew 13: 31–32 inspired my poem.
Published by Time of Singing (1995).
