more colors of blue

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan today
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

last Sunday in June
knitting with yarn
the color of blueberries

mid-August
blueberries on sale
from Canada now

early hours

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

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)

gratitude

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.
