Walking in the Autumn Wind

20171024_161802

As the oak leaves were filled with the brightness of the sun,

the wind swayed the tops of the pine trees,

and rippled the lake, carrying our prayers

over the surface of the water.

A hawk flew over with her shadow,

circling the poplar trees,

as the fall flowers reminded us of warmer days.

A Personal Invitation

100_1046

If you like this blog, and would like to see more of my work, in a faith based environment, this is your personal invitation to my other blogsite, Walking Through Psalms.

There you will find more of who I am, with Scripture quotes, commentary, and usually a prayer at the end. Sometimes I place a poem there, with a focus on faith in God.

I want to make it clear that all are welcome to both of my sites. I try to encourage all people, not only one particular faith. I spend a lot of time in the Old Testament, including the Psalms, which are so loved by many.

So please feel free to stop by. Tell them Nico sent you. You can find it here: www.walkingthroughpsalms.wordpress.com

I wish you peace.

Our Brokenness No Longer Dances

100_5705

In the stillness of the forest fog, our brokenness no longer dances,

as we absorb the silence, and the forest accepting

all of our prayers, our captivity is broken.

And our jagged edges

become smooth,

as we hear the hope

of chipmunks playing

in the leaves,

and our spirit breathes 

even more

of our healing.
