white Christmas (lite)


blanc fluff dusts tips of

evergreen branches; softens

brittle spikes of frozen grass

walk in the light

“In your light we see light.”  -Ps.36:9b






morning prayer path

first rays enlighten ditches

grass gives thanks for dew

















evening worship walk

sunset illumines grain fields

God whispers his love

but Ava knew Jesus

-with prayers for family of Ava Dieleman


why four-year-olds die?

life brittle as frosted grass

bleak october day

God listens to our lament

frozen tears in his bottle



“Surely the people are grass.
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8
