Redemption Wordle 189



Gathering  my  scattered  thoughts  together
in the splendour of this Autumn afternoon
I think back to the harvest of the maize
that opened distant vistas to my gaze.
The leafless twigs now rattle
before the icy breeze.

Worship of nature may be secular
Even so, the creator knows
how all that he made
is good.

Only we have spoiled it,
bent it out of shape.
It’s plain to see
we need to be

    Pressing “like” doesn’t seem enough. You hit the nail on the head yet again.


  2. Misky says:

    Quite so, and also quite a lovely poem.

    When one is a lover of nature it is hard not to see what we have done and continue to do to our world…

    I agree with MMT. So many of us are blind and greedy and with no thought of the future generations…our own children.


  5. magicalmysticalteacher says:

    I agree with you: It IS plain to see. (Which means, I suppose, that there are many blind people about.)


  6. I find the divine so present in nature and what we do seems almost sacraligious at times–your poem expresses this well.


  7. You’ve done it again. Delightful

    Love this one, Viv!


  9. Misky says:

    The first stanza is perfection, Viv.


  10. Oh, another great one from your pen. Yes, indeed

    Lovely – cautionary tale and form that fits
