What a Wonderful World.

I sit quietly on the ground

My back resting on a grand old oak tree

The stream flows gently before me

It bubbling water singing in sibilance,

The wonder of nature all around me

As new life springs into being

The buds almost growing before my eyes

As the rebirth of spring is before me.


The birds fly from tree to tree

The glory of their voices enhancing my world

As I sit and become one with natures glory,

A song come to me that belongs in this world

 And in my mind I sing it

Knowing that my life with nature

Is so wonderful as I sing

“What a wonderful world”

      The 'church' of god is all around you in this piece Mr G. What better way to worship than to be among the glories being mindful and then upon reflection writing this piece today. Spreading the good word.

      • Goldfinch60

        Thank you d a, our god can be seen in so many ways, especially just sitting with nature. The Native Americans has it right.

        Your lovely lines show how we can find blessings in these testing times - my dear friend --- communing with nature draws us closer to God.... a beautiful first read of my morning.

            Yes, it is a wonderful world and we should be mindful that it is often the little things, the invisible things, that impact us the most. A needful spirited write. Joe

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Joe, all we need to do is to see and hear these little things that are there for us in our lives.

              just back from a long walk across the estate of a local landowner - sheer joy to be out there and now back with a cup of tea.

              • Goldfinch60

                Walking with nature is so wonderful, as is a good cup of tea.
