From Above

From above on rocky hill
I see green trees below me.
The wind blows as it wildly will
Far above this rocky hill.
Distant curves of mountains fill
Horizons blue like wavy sea.
From above on rocky hill
So many trees below me.

OLN

Stretching limbs of autumn
Water somewhere near
The silence that the forest holds
Brings peace to ears that hear.

Sunday

Sunday’s when the mission church
From morning into night
Does its best with faithful rest
To praise the Lord of light.

The Lord of life who guides us all
When dawn proclaims the day
And we awake with thanks to take
Our part in some small way.

Nature As Art

Also linked to Trent P. McDonald’s The Weekly Smile. I smile when I realize how little my own efforts have had to do with things. I mainly had to show up and serve.

Alliteration

Mirror, mirror, mocking, merry,
How your scars are growing scary.
Winter’s wonders want to tarry,
Tucking tight with white the prairie.

Linked to dVerse Meeting the Bar. Bjorn is hosting with the theme of alliteration.

Winter’s Wonders

Dream

I’m tempted: Was it just a dream?
Perhaps it was what’s real?
Reminded things aren’t as they seem,
But how it lingers still.

Colored Textures

Imagine how you'd see in darkness
With little for the eyes to do
Then feel the texture of spring colors
Daily gifts of red and blue.
