In the Trees

More Birds and Trees

Up in the trees I see blue skies.
They’re sometimes cloudy, full of birds.
A storm approaches. With fresh eyes
come see beyond dark lying words.

Dale challenges us with the theme “in the trees” for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Great poem, Frank–very relatable: the storms come…and with fresh eyes we see beyond the lies. As someone who deals with depression, I’ve learned that when the storm or “bleak” comes I need to hang on tight…because the Lord is with me, regardless that I can’t see or feel Him in my boat…and when the skies clear, His Spirit reveals something I was missing. So while depression isn’t fun, I’ve come to a place where I look for the treasure within 🙂 Blessings to you! And oh, thanks for leading me to a great new blog–the one with the lovely porch as header image–I enjoyed reading some of the posts, so I Followed 🙂

    1. It is good that faith does not rest on feelings. Feelings are waves on water. I am glad to know there are treasures within depression. I will look for them as well.


      1. His faithfulness is so incredible–the best (maybe only good) thing about getting older is how our relationship with the Lord deepens if He truly is our heart’s desire–and I imagine you feel the same as I do in that regard. Last night as I was talking to Him, I was thinking about how a lot of the Bible reads like poetry to me (my One Year Bible is the NLT)–and suddenly I realized that when He said He made us in His image, He made some of us (me) to be poets! Okay, I guess you can see I really have that “childlike faith thing” going with our Good Good Father! Have a great day, Frank!
