Cultivating Kindness and Encouraging the Weary Soul

Poetry and Pictures: Where are you?

I’ve been writing poetry for a long time.

But I haven’t kept much of it for one reason or another. A lot of teenage and early 20s poetry were scribbled in cheap spiral-bound notebooks. Some of it was angsty and some of it simple observations. The latter I wish I would have held onto.

But now in this age of social media and digital pictures, a new inspiration arises.

I love the ability to easily capture a beautiful photograph, and then craft words to join the visual art.

Below are some pictures from around our house and local area (my muses in nature)

Little green lizard with bright blue eye

And a recent poem

Where are you?

In the heavens
Stars
Planets
Galaxies

Where are you?

In the depths
Under mountain
Ocean floor
Deep jungle

We search and find you
For you, Lord, are everywhere.

You know all the hiding places of humankind.
There is no secret unknown to you.

When we doubt all we need is to look.
Your goodness is in all you created.

Intricate designs
Endless imagination
Detailed beauty

When evil destroys
Your plan still prevails

Love is victorious
Goodness rises from ashes

Where are you now?
You are here with us.
