A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 57: Sunday God Quote – Karle Wilson Baker

This Sunday’s God quote is a poem by American poet Karle Wilson Baker (1878-1960), a university professor and writer from Texas who succeeded in a field dominated by men in her day.

The flame of my life burns low
Under the cluttered days,
Like a fire of leaves.
But always a little blue, sweet-smelling smoke
Goes up to God.
-“Blue Smoke”
