I Go

I wrote this poem after viewing another of Reena Walkling’s beautiful photographs. If you like photography, visit her Missing Moments blog. Her photographs are definitely inspiring! Posting this poem and photo to dVerse Poets Pub’s Open Link Night Week 32. I hope you enjoy it.

I Go 

Hiding in the dark forest

I stare down at the valley

The mountains, snow-capped

Stand in the distance…

So serene


Clouds, moving swiftly

Allow the Son to peak through

Gray-white vaporous veil

And behind it, I see…

His eyes

Not moving, barely a breath

Yet knowing I cannot hide

I sense Him… searching

Tenderly calling, and then…

His touch


I go

    No better cathedral than the God made ones..even Michaelangelo and all the pink marble in Italy can’t compare. Beautifully and prayerfully written. Thank you!
