Mountain Church

Four friends and I, one Sunday, take a ride. our church still closed just short of one full year. We drive, white almond blooms on either side, instead. Their branches wave as if to cheer, “Prepare the way! Prepare the way for God!” Each blade of mountain grass we see arise, like little children singing praises, laud. Some tiny purple flowers sing reprise, join fiddlenecks of gold, much like stained glass to deck the mountain like an A-frame church. We slowly drive the narrow mountain pass to see the valley from a lookout perch. The treetops seem to bow, like they declare their love for God. In awe, we join their prayer.

Jennifer, I love the way this poem extends the place of worship beyond the church. It becomes evident early in the poem that the real church encompasses all of the natural world. Well done!

Hi Jennifer, wow, what a very imaginative and lovely springtime sonnet. Warmest Best Wishes for the contest. The goose and wedding cake humor light verse poem has 85% truth to it. The goose did try to peck at the cake, and it kept trying, lol!!! The bride did help, "rescue", the cake. I almost tripped right before I placed it in her hands. Fortunately, the cake wasn't a huge one. :-)
