Creative Notes: The Psalms

I am reading through the Psalms again for my series at Poems From Psalms And Nature.

As I create the posts, I can see how my study of haiku and other short forms is reflected. I can easily spend an hour or more on a post, with also my research for the image.

This is good peaceful time.

My goal is to offer a few moments of hope and beauty. I also include other posts. I may, for example, rediscover a poem from the archives at one of my sites, and share again in a new way.

Always more to learn.

Creative at home.

These are examples from the posts at Poems From Psalms And Nature. Please visit that site if you wish to see the original posts with the pictures. Thank you.

Be still, and know that I am God . . .
From Psalm 46: 10

Blessed is he that considereth the poor:
the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
Psalm 41: 1

And now, Lord,
what wait I for?
my hope is in thee.
Psalm 39: 7

The LORD will give strength unto his people:
the LORD will bless his people with peace.
Psalm 29: 11

Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength,
and my redeemer.
Psalm 19: 14

Old Wood In The House

strong winter winds
old wood in the house
ceilings, floors, walls
startling me in the early hours
speaking to me this day

resilience
strength

the way
Hope holds

I thought I’d begin a new series here of posts that are influenced by my study of haiku.
