Daily writing prompt
List your top 5 favorite fruits.

These are short poems with fruits, from my blogs, along with a verse from The Psalms.

last Sunday in June
knitting with yarn
the color of blueberries

on tiny vase
from a thrift store
God’s special gift
for me today

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

blueberries on sale
from Canada now

Keep me as the apple of the eye,
hide me under the shadow of thy wings

Psalm 17: 8

What do you do to be involved in the community?

Small ways now – with blogs, and sharing my poems.

We donated many copies of Quiet Christmas Poetry. The poems can be read for free at the site.
