Do you practice religion?

God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.

Psalm 67: 1 – 2

Thrift Stores

Daily writing prompt
What’s the oldest things you’re wearing today?

We donate to thrift stores and shop at the same stores. I wonder about the stories. Here are poems from my blogs over the years. Thank you.

warmth on a cold day
sweaters and blankets
from thrift stores

colder weather
time for my favorite coat
from a thrift store

birds in the painting
from the thrift store
forever in flight

cup from a thrift store
on my grandmother’s
straw chest
near the window
fills with light

Some Creative Growth

What big events have taken place in your life over the past year?

Daily Prompt

I began this site, STUDY WINDOW POEMS, in February 2022. One day at a time, I take good care and love to learn and create.

My small study is a place to rest, listen to music, read, and perhaps write. Many years, and I am grateful. The view inspires many poems.
