Poems From Psalms And Nature

Often when I look for a photo for a post, I view many interesting and beautiful photos. My selections are informal. Perhaps I would like to illustrate a poem, add another color, and/or a photo expresses hope and resilience. I look for the photo that seems right for a specific post.

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.
