Morning River

sun on river mountain 1

Beautiful river plucked

fromĀ  place and time

reflecting the morning sun

meditation in the daytime

 

Our spirits are called

we reflect upon the day

observing all of nature

in a creative way

 

Some people paint

others compose a song

contemplating life

no way is wrong

 

The river surrounds us

we can canoe or fish

providing an adventure

however we wish

 

Our souls are nourished

in this grand place

God provides pleasure

a reflection of His grace

 

Taking care of this river

a task for you and me

protecting it’s beauty

for all to see

 

My soul is renewed

as I leave this place

meditation is done

feeling God’s grace

Dashing Down the River

colorado falls in park

Dashing through the river of life

never giving a care

every turn a new adventure

excitement in the air

 

There are rapids

around each twist and turn

a thrill a minute

of something we yearn

 

Oh the years

they dash by so fast

never giving a thought

if the adventure will last

 

We reach the top

of the great waterfall

tossing and turning

alas there is a fall

 

The river is quiet

it flows so slow

time to reflect

before we go

 

The journey was fun

we learned quite a lot

time to rest our heads

dreaming under the night’s dots

 

It is morning

time to rise again

dashing to another adventure

sharing life till the end

Nature

petrified forest water path 2 april 14

Nature is so beautiful

in each and every way

God gave His perfect creation

to admire each day

 

We walk along the paths

enjoy the river runs

never giving a thought

of not having fun

 

I cringe at the thought

of nature going away

not having a place to go

for serenity and to pray

 

Taking care of this planet

is our charge

not wasting its resources

by living large

 

God gave us nature

to provide for our needs

we must use its resources wisely

with wisdom to heed

 

My soul is nourished

grateful for God’s grace

in the beauty of nature

observing each place

Sun on the River

sun on river mountain 1

Sun on the river

promise of a new day

commit to nurturing our souls

in a peaceful way

 

Beauty surrounds us

the sounds of nature around

lifting our spirits

by leaps and bounds

 

Silently meditating

taking God’s world in

rejoicing in His glory

a thrill to the soul within

 

Committing to become one

feeling that God is near

with peace and serenity

listening with each ear

 

We are reminded

as our souls are renewed

to love one another

on each day anew

 

We leave nature nourished

the day is at hand

spreading kindness to all

throughout this great land

Relief by the River

colorado park river

The day is warm

the sun high above the trees

contemplating life

on my knees

 

The river is cool

calming to my soul

giving refreshing water

like days of ole

 

Life seems so uncertain

as we contemplate the times

trusting that God will provide

safety from crimes

 

The river is peaceful

my soul is renewed

all is well

on this day anew

 

The storm has passed

we are cared for

life is now calm

it is time to soar
