Mist in the Mountains

from katsuyoshi via google

The earth seemed young back then,


vieled in a cloak,

mist of uncertainty.

I went searching,

heart crushed,

but beating.

Is there peace?

Walking the trails,

down by the creek,

into the deep woods,

Was that His voice?

Wrapped in fog,

safe but a lack of vision,

seeking answers.


Owls calling,

truth hidden,

I can’t see.

At the darkest moment,

a small light,

appeared in the sky,

lighting up the trail,

showing me the way.

There is peace,

on the trail,

mist burned away,

darkness destroyed,

as long as there is light.

  1. Amazing and I love these verses very much

    There is peace,

    on the trail,

    mist burned away,

    darkness destroyed,

    as long as there is light.

    Best wishes to you, dear Nico, Aquileana πŸ˜€

  2. Lovely stuff…I also feel such a connection to God in nature. When I was a kid I would climb my favourite tree when upset and just sit there and sway. The tree was a good listener, and understood me without needing words. It was praying before I even knew what prayer was.
    This poem is so fitting right now as I’m on a three day silent retreat on the mountain lakeside, and have been out walking the trails today when not in the chapel inside!

    1. That’s so awesome! God bless you in your retreat! When I was growing up the woods were a great comfort. I agree we can have a form of prayer, without even knowing we are praying or what prayer is! Please come back again to my neighborhood (blog)!

      1. Thank you for your blessings and for prayers for a fruitful retreat! I have 5 little ones at home so this is a lovely chance for me to have some quiet time to be with God, and pray when I can hear him more clearly without the noise so all my monkeys running about! πŸ˜‰

        Love your poems. Such a beautiful way to share our interior lives with others. I’ll certainly come look again, and if you’d like to see some of my writing and poems, please feel most welcome to visit my blog: Just East of Crazy Land / Adventures in Parenting. I started it fairly recently as well (maybe a year and a half) and love connecting with other writers and readers as well.

        All the best,

  3. Sorry for my late comment! I agree with everyone, especially Trini’s comment πŸ™‚
    I continue to hope and pray for light to shine through, even when so many sad events are taking place.
    Wish you a good weekend,
