You Are and More

Your love hovers upon me
Like the clouds above
Your care and patience
Can calm my restlessness
Like the riverbanks contain
The ripples of the water
Keeping it on hold and be still

Your forbearance rivals
The abundant dense forest
When on my darkest times
You shower me with light
Like the sunshine’s caress
Over the green thick grass
You are and more than that
Thank you for nursing my heart

  11. Eileen you're so gracious in sharing to me your precious pictures and I am glad I'm close to giving justice to your visual poetry.

    Psalmist and Eileen, I must confess I am a "feminist" and it took over me to have used this template.
