Vintage Picture and Two Poems

feeling new poems
fallow fields
waking up

(Time Of Singing, 2000)

This was a poem about beginning to write again, as I recall.

cup of coffee
by the water
this day to God

Now when I begin the day, I wonder what poems may be given. And when I am unable to write, I review my archives, as you know. And anytime, good to review if we can. We may be surprised to rediscover some old work. See some growth. Be encouraged to continue, try new ideas. And always beauty – I rest and look out the window. A different pace now, with peaceful gratitude.

I did not know to pray . . .
verses of Psalms

Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
Psalm 25:1 (KJV)

from May 2012

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.
