As the Pine Trees Sway


As the pine trees sway in the warm summer breeze,

I finally reach the top of the ridge

and my heart skips

a beat

while the ascending begins

I look up

and a prayer escapes,

from my heart.

    1. Thank you Tanya! Actually my wife has cancer – for the second time. So its been a tough challenge. This time around started a couple months ago. There’s a post I wrote called, “A Poem from the Hospital.” Please keep us in your prayers. Peace and wonderful blessings to you.

      1. Thank you Nicodemas. Swaying pines whisper in the breeze. It is the most comforting sound. I grew up with this sound, and wish I could hear it again. Blessings.
