The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.

Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)

Grief And Acceptance


I have several sites and am taking some time to review and reflect.  I like how Haiku Prayers – Poetry And Other Art has grown – a place to share news about haiku, education, poetry and other art.

Grief And Acceptance is more personal.  You are welcome to visit.

All of my blogs have a lot in common.  For those who follow more than one of my blogs, all the content will not be new.  I’ve been online since December 2009.

I updated my page here on Haiku PrayersList Of My Websites.


four generations
in the family now
Lord, may I live
this time with wisdom
and love


encouragement –
books and notes
and no competition
unexpected grace


Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

The first line is from Psalm 42 (KJV).

Thank you and blessings,

September years


September years
the time of bright flowers
is gone for a time
how beautiful the daylily leaves
resting on the ground

I am so grateful for the years so far in my life.  I am in my 60s now and learning a new time.  Perhaps because I had a chronic illness when young, I may feel older than others I know my age.  That’s fine.  The gardens are wild and my life is quiet.  Happy to pass the torch. Grateful.  I took the photo yesterday.  Ellen
