Sunday, July 3

Put not your trust in rulers, nor in any child of earth, *

for there is no help in them.

When they breathe their last, they return to earth, *

and in that day their thoughts perish. Psalm 146:2-3 (BCP)

Bleached by the sun

Frayed in the wash

The quilt fades

birds pick up the threads to build a nest.
