Gentle and Sublime- #poetry of #spirituality and the #naturalworld



As the Silence of echoes Peal

As the Whispers of Compassion feel

While the angels stoop to Pray

Fragility strikes the chords that Play

Refrain of Memory sadly Sings

Verses that Eternity brings

Lullaby of ancient Rhyme

Lilting Gentle and Sublime

God Gives Shade ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

God gives shade,
to us when weary
provides a cover
when we’re dreary.

He shadows us with,
with mighty wings
helps us to rise
above all things.

God gives shade,
to us when frayed
provides a screen
when burden lade.

He shields us,
with His right hand
holds us upright
when we can’t stand.

God gives shade,
to us when dismayed
so His glory on us . . .
can be displayed!


Psalm 121:5

“The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon
thy right hand.”

Exhilarating Inflating

Peacock Poetry

One of our favourite summertime leisure activities is taking our inflatable kayak out to the stunning Swiss lakes. Last year our friends Anthony and Alison purchased their own inflatable boat and so we enjoyed some really fun lake meet-ups all washed down with a boozy brunch or two!

Luscious Lake

Church bells peal across the breezy basin

The gold-glitter sun twinkling over the luscious lake

The Challenger launches, quick to find its stride

closely followed by the eager Sea Eagle

This is becoming something of a ritual;

The gliding, gazing, glimpsing of amazing calmness

My dramas drifting off to distant shores

And gratitude glistening from elated eyes

exaggerated by lively leaps from hairy heights

soles stoically smarting from wild water wounds

The boozy picnic pow-wow generously concluding our joyous jaunt
