A poem of solitude. A reflection back to a much simpler time vacationing in Eastern Ohio.


 

 
My home in the woods is where I find peace
In this place, the wild fowl and I mingle
Elsewhere, I lack the same sense of release
It is nature that makes my spine tingle

Oak trees on the hill, the river below
The aromas of earth’s sweet revival
Water o’er the dam, as white as the snow
Important to our very survival

The mornings in sun and evenings in shade
Astounding highlights I must recommend
The dew on the grass, kissing every blade
Innate wonder empowering each bend

My woodland home is indeed a blessing
A gift from God, worthy of professing

Bloody stunning. In a few weeks I'm off on a silent retreat with the friars at Aylsford. You show here the beauty of solitude.

Such a beautiful mind.

I think of Tozer, Richard Rohr and Thomas Merton as I read this.

Gratitude for solitude. What a wonderful combination. May you find it wherever you are, not just in retrospect.

Your home in the woods sounds wonderful. Reminds me of the home in the woods I had a few years back. I lived on the Suwannee River in a wooded area where one can truly enjoy nature.

Blessings,
Jeanette

Reviewed by Georg Mateos 7/8/2010
To be alone in the woodlands doesn't make it a time of solitude but a communion with the vast universe all around. Peace of heart and peace of mind is what strengths the soul's fortitude.
