    I stand in awe of nature’s
    ability to move me in the
    way that the trees sway
    as the wind blows.

    Embracing the rays of the
    sun as it beams forth
    life and warmth to a
    winter’s day.

    I cherish this very second
    for a moment of peace and
    serenity casting off all
    the burdens of the heart.

    Enwombed by the love of
    a Spirit on high sending blessings
    down low of which nobody
    has seen but wishes to know.

    I now understand the fullness
    of His love in the form
    of a dove as He has blessed
    me to see.

    Meek and fragile seed sensitive
    to the needs people plead a
    faithful servant to That which
    has created me.

    Even in the mist of the storm
    when pain and suffering falls
    like rain on my head for to live
    is to suffer and to die is to gain.

    God provides a shelter of love
    furnishing me with courage and
    strength to run this race to
    its fullest length.

    All while listening to the
    whispers of the wind in the
    wilderness as it blows through
    the meadow of my soul
    manifesting the essence of
    a young black man.

    BRO!!!! YO!!! MAN YOU GOT ME OVER HERE TRIPPING...

    THAT IS IT!!! THAT IS THE TRUE LOVE ROOTED ON THE FOUNDATION OF GOD...

    you have tapped into the nature of God. At first i thought it was one of mine for it seemed so similar, but it is only familiar because it speaks of peace, serenity and calm in the meadow, and garden of life. Stay there bro and allow the words to come to you...Allow your pen to be the voice for God and watch your vision become a place of true outpouring. Here's something that was shared with me when i first began to see in this way and i send it to you.

    "Write what I give you, and I will give you what you write." - God

    Now we have the garden and the meadow. Tell me, where are you resting when you wrote this in your thoughts? I'm thinkin along a brook maybe...

    frogive me but this piece is revelatory to where you are walking and i am excited...

    man i can't explain it but when i read this i see God. this is so real to me because when i write i know it's HIM but i finally get the chance to see from the readers point of view...You have blessed me immensely bro'...no doubt...

    Man i am excited about what God is doing...:jumping: :spin: :lol: :rolling:

    "D" Bro!

    Glad to have touched you with the words! I was resting in the meadow under the tree by the brook and came across this piece while I was enjoying the the nature of life in the wind. Enjoying all the simple things that we tend to forget about. Cause we are all one breath from death so we need to give this life our best using our God giving gifts to uplift and to encourage!
    Thanks poet for your time and read!:)
