Mindful Musings: May 5

“The Earth is My Church”

By: Forrest Rivers

Chirping birds

Sing their heavenly song

Early in the morning

The rising sun greets

Hungry seekers

Gathered in worship

And the cool air brings

Levity to a new day….

In this church, you see,

There is no priest

Other then the rocks and trees

The mountains and the breeze.

“The Soul of Nature”

By: Forrest Rivers

forest trees

The trail is my refuge

A road to God

The beckons my mind

To acknowledge

All I am a part of….

As I walk

My spirit is moved

By the beauty of the divine

Beyond space and time

The soul of nature

Is reflected in the moon

Watching

Waiting

With her eyes

Fixed on the tides

That condition my mood

To transcend

the illusion of separateness.

Mindful Musings-Earth Day!

“Tales of Rebirth”

white and pink flowers under blue sky during daytime

Tales of rebirth

A genesis

New beginnings

A divine reception

Seeds growing

As winter rides

Faithfully off

Into the sunset

Spring rains

Bring

Gardens to till

But this time

One finds

The secret of life

Hidden in plain sight

Just like the Earth

Spinning

On her cosmic wheel

Of birth and death.
