Forest Revere

A moment alone
In a forest of one
Brings clarity
Clears rebellion.
 
The wind in the trees
Whisper softly to me
Of secrets 
And gentle reminders.
 
They tell me I’m not alone
Though no one I see
Because Someone
Is always walking with me.
 
The birds chirp loudly
And fly over head
Startling me
out of revere.
 
I look to the sky
Notice clouds that drift by
Painted the colors
Of the sun’s slowing death.

Yet I am reminded
It is not a permanent one
Because I know
That was changed by Someone.
 
Prove it?
No,
I’m happy
As is.

The second picture is one I’ve manipulated a bit because I couldn’t find any of my sunset pictures.

My Path – Day Four

Sitting here alone,
I wonder where I’ll go.
I’m forever lost.
 
I don’t know
What I’m suppose to do.
I chose this.
 
My dark path
Will take me far into
Darkness, always alone.
 
Black space envelops
And yet I feel safe
Here, without distractions.
 
I thought wrong.
I wasn’t always alone here.
You where there.
 
You were with
Me, holding my shaking hand
Giving me hope.
 
My loving Lord.
My eternal Friend, within and
Without my heart.

Yesterday afternoon was very trying and though for a moment I felt alone, I knew in my heart that I was simply being carried.
