I See God
I’m going to pretend that this rain
in the lane
Heralds the arrival of spring
when birds sing
As through this long winter I trod
I see God
The robin finds worms in rain-soaked sod
More death and winter the nightly news portends
Yet new life and spring my dear Christ forfends
In the lane when birds sing I see God
Just had to write a second Ovillejo for dVerse Poets Pub.
Lovely….nature and hope are two dear words!

You went for a second one, Linda, and you did great. It is a fun one though challenging.
Oh this makes me smile and sing!
Beautifully executed, Linda…and a new (old) word for me (forfends)!
It came to me as I was trying to fall asleep last night, along with portends as a rhyme. I had to look it up to make sure I used it right. 😉
He’s working daily, no doubt, rain or shine. Thanks for heralding God’s unfailing love
Thanks for the encouragement. His love is definitely worth heralding!
I think nature is our best friend .. even in the darkest of winter.
I am looking forward to that spring arrival ~ An inspiring poem to read today~
Good work on the form too Linda ~
Oh, this is just beautiful. A fine, fine example of the form.
I see my Creator in nature, too.
This is a lovely form. I am so glad you shared it with us.
