NaPoWriMo – Day 13 – Along The River

NAPO 2013 BUTTON

The prompt for Day 13 was to take a walk and incorporate the elements of that walk into a poem.

Exif JPEGALONG THE RIVER

The sun is playing hide and seek with clouds
Along the river.
The clouds are gray, but friendly, soft, and free
Along the river.

I move unhampered by the flirting breeze
Along the river,
Breathing deeply of the moistened earth
Along the river.

Quiet now invades my mind and soul
Along the river.
I’m letting go of tumbling, troubled thoughts
Along the river.

My past recedes; my future quiet rests
Along the river,
And water speaks to waters deep within,
Along the river.

I sit and contemplate historic days
Along the river:
The generations served by this same stream
Along the river.

And sense that I belong to something great
Along the river:
A part of something bigger than myself
Along the river.

And far beyond my power to understand,
Along the river,
An elemental knowing I am known —
And I am loved —
By the Creator of the river.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge — Red and White

Cee’s challenge this week is the colors Red and White. I chose a photo of the front of a greeting card. I create greeting cards, and this particular design is from a set I created for a lady who takes her walk of faith very seriously, but has fun with it too. The cards are blank inside for personal notes, but the cover reflects a feminine take on “walking by faith.”
