Oceans 2031

Seeking the highest rocks,

the deepest rivers, the trees,

answers without words,

oneness of spirit,


But the curse of the seeker,

is loneliness,

wanting a heart called Lakota,

tied in with the heartbeat,

seeing cathedrals,

clouds for walking on.

Living in the valley he learns,

painful lessons,

and joy, with love,

always looking though,

to the west.

to the loneliness,

of the mountains.

  1. when I was in college, I worked as a camp counselor at a girls camp up in the mountains of North Carolina–the Camp’s “psalm” was Psalm 121—“I lift up my eyes to the hills (mountains) -where does my help come from. . .”
    This picture and these words joyfully transport me to those summers long ago—very lovely—thank you Nicodemas—

    1. Thank you Julie for your wonderful comments. Looking to the hills can be a very big positive. Our Creator can use nature for healing for sure. Sometimes I get too wrapped up in the clouds though, and I need to be more based in the valley. My wife’s favorite verses are from Psalm121. Peace and blessings.
