Blessed Company

Thrush hurls her song

in curls and spirals and dead straight lines


The trees stand as still as time

The hills look down benignly


The wind converses enigmatically

The river merely suggests itself so quietly


Even the buttercups

Nod their heads with glee –


I feel I am among

such blessed company.

The Vision


Seeing a bare winter tree

stripped of all beauty

awaiting renewal


I had such a vision

of God’s providence

knowing new life would prevail

over the brittleness of death


That has never left my soul.


Inspired by Brother Lawrence, whose book is “Book of the Month” @ https://thecontemplativewriter.com/2018/06/14/book-of-the-month-the-practice-of-the-presence-of-god/
