someone helps me
at the library
and I say thank you
then help someone else
at the grocery store

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not from us.
2 Corinthians 4: 7

Psalms of Praise

gold leaves dance
in sun and wind
psalms of praise

gold leaves
drift to ground
sunbeam on water

Autumn afternoon
early glow of streetlights
in town

November garden
fallen leaves  so much has died
a single rose blooms

For my review, now I plan to simply go through my archives, one month at a time. I can copy and paste old posts that I would like to share again. I like the new Gutenberg editor a lot, which gives older work a new life as well.

Blogs are a great way to organize our work. They have also become a journal for me. When did the peonies bloom last year? Did I post this poem before? I can see my heart in this poem, and perhaps could write it better now.
