A Choir of Nature

“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness therein, the world and they that dwell therein” A Psalm of David…
Solitary, I stand upon these ever changing shores Where sun, sea, earth and winds abide Where time and tide flow forevermore In a timeless waltz, as one, they reside Within this glorious setting sits a conspicuous ruin A beautiful church built with mortar and stone Stones carved and laid by hands, gifted and willing And now vast blue skie replace the old wooden dome B'neath sits an altar graced by Morning Glory vines Ascending, yet, to the sun and matching blue skies While fragile walls hugged by bougainvillea climbs Well dressed in their shocking pink and white styles And though silence prevails, I hear a choir of nature sing Melodious chants echoing within these broken walls Where the elements congregate and worship in sync... Transfixed; I kneel in worship and my soul gives its all! ~*~

    What a brilliant write, Annalise. What a great picturization of neglect of religion these days. Churches are allowed to be eaten by the termite of time. May God forgive us. Thanks for your magnificent comments on my Quatrain The Escape. It is thought provoking, indeed. -Mohammad

    This is the most beautiful writing for this contest... The other were great... but yours, in my opinion, could take me there, to the church by the ocean.

    As I looked for photos of old churches by the sea, your poem described one in particular to a letter T. This conspicuous ruin that you wrote about is one of your best works yet. I am enthralled by its beauty. I loved Matt C's different, yet so similar the moods yours emits. A wonderful even better write.

    Annalise-this poem is sent as an offering to God as a gift of your God-given talent. I love this...I will place it in my favs. Such a wonderful angle with the timeless waltz. The morning glory vines are so perfect a choice of plant too! Took my breath away. Check out Curtis Moorman's entry also if you have time. I really enjoyed his also. God Bless, Annalise.

    Annalise, your poem makes me think of the beautiful church on the ocean where John and I were married. "Our Lady of the Sea" it was named. I had chills reading it, especially the "timeless waltz" and the description of the morning glories reaching for the sun. Magnificent and you know I'm always hoping to see your poems in the winners' list. Love you, Carolyn
