The Nature of Things

DSCN4377 

I drench my pillow with salty tears,
as night shadows loiter – slowly lurk;
till twinkling stars map promising hope.
 
Down woodland lane and sturdy oaks,
past thick meadow spills new growth,
toward endless surf and eternal sands;
 
all so much greater than I am.
There I whisper a longing prayer;
God’s creation with each rising sun.
 
“The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.”
Psalms 19:1

Over at dverse we’re taking a look at nature’s healing touch.

  1. The Psalm at the end of this sums up your thoughts very nicely. Perhaps that’s why nature is so soothing…it’s the time that we are closest to God (whether or not we admit it).

  2. I specially like the hope & longing prayer:

    all so much greater than I am.
    There I whisper a longing prayer;
    God’s creation with each rising sun.

  3. Perhaps the saddest song of all..
    is the one that sings where is
    the evidence for GOD..
    inside.. outside..
    above.. so
    below..
    a Galaxy.. a Fetus..
    a Sunflower..
    a Nautilus
    all in
    GOD’s
    GOLDEN
    Spiral
    Flow..
    so i record
    all of it and
    share it
    and
    sing
    A NEW Song..
    from the Mountain
    of my soUl echOing
    spiRit back WitHeArt..:)

  4. Beautiful. I love the twinkling stars mapping promising hope. I was recently on top of Haleakala after sunset and saw the stars come out. They are an amazing testament to God’s glory and the hope He provides. Peace, Linda

  5. A short read that is brimming with faith, emotion, & reverence. I,too, like the line /till twinkling stars map promising hope/ I never thought of them that way; brilliant word smithing. Here in western WA, the big city lights mask the stars’ have to cross the mountains to the sage brush & wheat fields to find the star maps.

  6. This evokes so much emotion: “as night shadows loiter – slowly lurk;
    till twinkling stars map promising hope.”

    It depicts the shift in internal emotions and thoughts so perfectly…..and the way that Nature can have an impact on those things. Wow. Great job. Thanks for linking up today 🙂
