In The Wood

This is week one of the 100 Word Wednesday Challenge, and here is the photo and my response. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you’d like to participate, click here to read BikurGurl’s guidelines. ๐Ÿ˜‰ According to Microsoft Word, this is 106 words. (It was originally 120 but I managed to trim it back a bit. ๐Ÿ˜Š)

In the wood, murmurs abound
We hear the insistent whisper
For us to come draw near
To hurry and follow the sound

Trees tower into the cerulean sky
The wind rustles leaves below us
That winter striped from the deciduous
Leaving empty branches reaching high

Mother Natureโ€™s blanket cracks
Beneath Fivefinger shoes
I’m amazed by the hues
His creation takes me aback

This is where I prefer
To connect with the One
And His only begotten Son
Who created this grandeur

In nature, itโ€™s easier to be still
And know that He is God
I realize it may seem odd
That here, He voices His will
