Sweet mystery

Sweet mystery

Sweet mystery, such mystery
As I look to the other shore
The the river flows so peacefully
And it thrills me to the core
To see those trees in vibrant green
As they dance in the morning breeze
I cannot help but love this life
It gives to me such ease.

Oh it is such a wondrous power
That resides within the heart
Of nature, pure and simple nature
It helps me with my art
Of writing words of beauty
To please the mystic soul
I sit here watching nature
And feel it make me whole.

These lovely birds of wonder
They give me such a thrill
I love those graceful Pelicans
And I know I always will
As gracefully they ride the skies
And fly amidst the trees
As do I write these words on down
That some ones soul might please.

    Hi Vincent, it seems that we are two of a kind in many ways. I would not call myself religious, But all my world is based on spirituality. It is just That I have always been self reliant. At the moment I am reading the 'Gospel of Saint Thomas, and loving it. Have you read it yet. It shows me the Jesus that I love. I appreciate you kindness, My friend....peter
