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.
2 Corinthians 4: 7

trees and flowers

I look out the windows and see the light green growth at the ends of the evergreen branches. The purple and white lilacs are gorgeous, along with forget-me-nots, and yellow and purple violets.

flowers and leaves
in light wind
and sun . . .
new beginnings
at any age

February poems

February light
on the evergreens
easy to imagine
their new growth
in spring

roots in His Word
I will flower
again and again
