standing on the heights

A few years ago, I climbed Mt. Torreys with my brother, Dale, who has climbed many of Colorado’s 14ers.  (Photo found at all trails)


 

inhale mountain air

top-of-world experience

scale barren summit

bird’s eye view of blue vista

worth gulping lungs, aching legs

the sky is bluer
birds are singing once again
caressed by sunshine

each day is little longer
lenten season buds with hope!

psalm for earth day

Psalm 104 is a poem that celebrates creation! I write a humble triolet for earth day. Okay, I’m a day late but to a farmer every day is earth day, right?!

 

bless the Lord who forms the earth
he calls us to be caretakers
let creatures thrive, let life give birth

bless the Lord who forms the earth
air, water, soils of priceless worth
forgive us wasteful mess makers

bless the Lord who forms the earth
he calls us to be caretakers
