every morning

Originally posted on Poems From Psalms And Nature:

every morning
it seems
I turn to the Psalms
their beauty
trust
faith
lament
praise
pages old now
and more memories
than I can hold
yet safe with Him
and each day
something stays
and something new
is given – though
I may not see
at the time

This is a new poem that I’d like to share here as well. Blessings for Easter and always, Ellen

sun fades
art on walls
and prints
on bookcases
in frames or
held in place
by some small
treasure

I take care
to preserve
yet also like
the thought
that in a way
each is then
unique to this

time and place

As a poet, if a poem becomes a part of someone’s life in a new way, somehow the work now has its own life.
