pink clouds

pink clouds
span the horizon
seagulls take flight
stretching to read
new books

predawn

predawn
and watching
the sky grow light
gift of another day
to read and write

Psalm 119: 54

Thy statutes have been my songs
in the house of my pilgrimage.

Psalm 119: 54 (KJV)

poems we read

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

fragrance of leaves

fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older
