Where Nature & Spirits Intersect

Gazing into the afternoon sky
While this Westward sun's
Slowly setting,
Filtering its rays
Through porch and trees
Cooling the carpet below my feet
Forest's growing silent
Soon to frame a crescent moon

On wires above, I wonder
How our voices travel so far
Where the birds they gather
Over every thought crossed

Waves transmit

Mosquitoes circle below me
While long wet grass
Licks my ankles
Turning my nose
At rain so relentless

Fixed we are
Like a grid
Where nature & Spirits intersect
Only rest assured
When God forgives-
He also rectifies
Like the silver cord-that's severed
No man or spirits
Can hold you

So run the race
Lay aside every encumbrance
Pursue peace with all men,
Pluck the root of bitterness
So your victory be sweet.."
Heb. 12~

When nature and spirits intersect, the nature talks, I listen.

that one sentence could change the whole world
"pursue peace with all men" what a wonderful world we could have if we could all follow that and Jesus command to love others as we love ourselves. to love others more than we love ourselves.
the sky is beyond spectacular

First of all your big blue parrot fish makes me smile. That lipstick just does not go with the face paint.

And your words are such a great reminder. How smart we think we are with all our technology. Yet how much greater are the simple Spiritual skills. Have a good one.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Your post is a delightful, heady mix of blues and pinks, with lovely words to match. You really should write a little inspirational poem book with the poems on one side and photos on the other. I love the part about the birds hovering above our transmitted thoughts and us being fixed like a grid, what images come to mind!! I am just going to print this one out to read in the future.
