Monadnock Morning

A poetic offering from my recent weekend in New Hampshire.

If you want to know more about my weekend retreat here, or would like me to write about it in more detail, or do a video coffee chat- I would love too. Leave a comment below.

Meanwhile, I pray this poem I wrote Saturday morning, gives you a glimpse into the beauty I experienced there.

Note: I did share two of my poems on the Saturday evening Talent Show…to keep my fear of public speaking at bay. Onward- for His glory! The poems I shared at the Women’s Retreat (April 28th- 30th) can be read when you click on the linked titles here: Luminary and Anyway .

See my Local Events page for the next public Poetry Reading I will be doing.

Monadnock Morning


The sky this morning, willowy

peach and blue


The tall pine, standing by the pond,

a solo storyteller


The mountain in silently

speaks an ageless wisdom


These are your gospel to me this morning.


The one crow, a messenger

caws from the newly budding branches


Is he saying to me, Good Morning,

Is he asking me to notice the details, of each moment?



the moments are fleeting, the moments are mysteries

seen but not always understood…

like the gray and white clouds

which have already swallowed the

tender colors of dawn.


Though they are gone forever,

they have served their momentary

purpose, and His glory

rises with the sun.


New mercies in abundance,

we receive from Him-

We are created, restored, and


rise, like the sun-

begin again.


*The verses I reflected upon for writing this poem: Psalm 51:10-12; 15 


Thank  you for reading and joining me today!
