Hume Lake Inspiration


Blackened landscape, on a cool wet night

Tops of trees are the moon’s delight

Scent of pine and misty forest floor

Stars like I’ve never seen before

What was it that this eve had to offer

As the moon knelt down to the lake at the altar

The wild bowed in the sight of God

Worshipping Him for its existence

Owls and crickets’ songs applaud

As they dwelt among the fog in the distance

Friends share their woeful tales

Singing tunes of praise and admire

Walking along sky-lit trails

And sitting by an open fire

Even in the cold of the night,

Hearts are being warmed

Inspiration from a wilderness sight

Causes souls to be transformed

Dazzled with the beauty all around

Stopped stark, paused in the moment

I quiet my being so from me not a sound

Could ruin this image of God’s atonement

    Leya, your poem makes us all reflect on the serenity one experiences from nature, and that is a gift from God. I loved your poem and it certainly has transformed my soul. Thanks for posting this well-written tribute to our LORD and Savior. 🙂
