Gift Poems

In my previous post, turning the vase, I mentioned that some poems are simply gifts. Perhaps practice helps us to be able to create art from these moments, as we pay attention, work, and rest. Reflect. Revise as needed. Honor the time the work needs.

These are a few more examples, from my blog archives in general.

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace

Published in Bell’s Letters PoetWestWard Quarterly, and SMILE.

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

trusting God
a little more
with my questions
fog rests
on Spring fields

Time Of Singing, Spring 2014
