A walk with God


Winter is here
everything covered
in snow.
I am walking
and God is walking
beside me.

My intellect
along with all my worries
are with me as before
but I don't listen
the way I used to

I realize
that God can be trusted
He will carry me
when I can't find a way to go
He will lift me up with joy
when I am happy

I don't have to understand
it all.
I don't have to analyze
it all.
I can rest in His arms
knowing nothing
believing everything

I am walking home
home through the snow
and God is with me.

    a great poem. Clear diction. Clear thought......and it is so true. When we believe in God we need not worry about anything else. As Lord Krishna said in Bhagat Geeta,
    'When a person keeps thinking of me at all times
    I'll take care of all his day to day needs' (Report) Reply

    I feel as though I am snow-boarding beside you Pia. Touching God as we go through our snow paths... Very gently written... thanks Pia, xxxPenny (Report) Reply

    This shows the true faith in God, who is leading us every second. 'Lead kindly light amidst the encircling gloom, Lead thou me on' is the spirit that comes out of this divine poem. (Report) Reply

    Only God can rightfully guide us all through life's hard path to freedom of soul.
    This was a great insightful read. An easy tenner.

    Praise for your beautiful snowscape in which, it would seem, that God is walking as closely with you as your shadow. Take care.

    Warmest regards,

    Oh dear, I just re-read that comment. I hope you dont think I find your poem 'too' simple. It is just extremely focused and not complex...lovely.
