heart peace

heart peace
and mind at rest
clear night sky


During a difficult time with my health, I read, “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places . . .”  Isaiah 45: 3 (KJV).

From past years:

all these years
the gift of seeing
how evergreen
frame the stars

one month ends
another begins
evergreen branches
frame the night sky

promise of goldenrod


at work
in the kitchen
I look out the window
and rest in the sight
of goldenrod by the road

after brilliant colors
of spring and summer

* * *

But he knoweth

the way that I take:

when he hath tried me,

I shall come forth as gold.

Job 23:10 (KJV)

Beautiful Verse


The LORD thy God
in the midst of thee
is mighty; he will save,
he will rejoice over thee
with joy; he will rest
in his love, he will joy
over thee with singing.

Zephaniah 3: 17 (KJV)


The photos of the goldenrod are from the garden yesterday.
