The Work Of Faith


grain in the silo
barn full of hay
devotions made each day

Hope’s Devotion


even as
winter’s darkness gathers
color and light persist

Devotion To Grey


late February days
when daytime
feels like twilight

Columbine Consecration


garden prayers
in the morning light
a flowering devotion

to be waited for
and received in love
is the soul of homecoming

the prayer and devotion
of snow

as snow recedes devoted pines
demonstrate being green
for leafless trees

The birch waves her prayer flags
each flutter a devotion
to the divine.
