(563) An Awesome View - Poem by Melvina Germain

It was a cool night with a slight drizzle in the air.
I stood at the hilltop and was in awe while standing there.
In the distance a rainbow formed, colors beautiful and bright.
I was amazed at this extraordinary awesome sight.

I see mirrors within the still waters, a half moon toward the sky.
I see shadows of large creatures gliding slowly by.
The colours are vivid with tints of periwinkle blue,
and vibrant dashes of mauve sparingly coming through.

A lip formation of moss resting upon a soft face of sand,
welcomes the touch of the Lord's glorious divine hand.
I picture the eye of God in that half moon up above,
sending showers of heavenly tears to all with his love.

The vast ocean resonates with tranquil, serene peace,
yet powerful enough to devour the largest of all beasts.
The Lord has so much love to share with all of you.
God's gift to man are these wondrous awesome views.

    It's all a game of unconscious, where our uncalled fears and unfulfilled desires are reshaped in dreams. We all see such dreams when we are not enjoying a deep sleep. A good poetess like Melvina Germain is capable enough to describe such dreams in a great poem like this. It's a wonderful poem. (Report)Reply

    has done for us. Great poem Melvina! Highest Marks. You are an inspiration to us all.Thank you.

    The creator designed all things to be interconnected and inter dependent.But few of us are granted the ability to stand back and see Mans free will often leads him astray following success at any price.Blinkering his eyes to what he has and what is provided freely for him
    You must have time to stand and stare and just to BE

    This is a highly imaginative response to a perfect example of nature's beauty. It is the role of the poet to show the rest of the world about such spectacular moments of wonder. You have certainly fulfilled your role par excellence, Melvina. Thanks for sharing this. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply

    Amazing work! I seen it all with each word you wrote so well, , , so eloquently! You have such a gift of uplifting others and bringing them to the feet of God just by how you express yourself!
    Melvina over the last ten days I saw so many of Gods great beautiful wonders in nature! From the mountains to the streams, creeks and cloud formations which settled so amazingly on a picturesqe skies of blues, purples and red. Nature heals and God heals...the two of these go hand and hand so perfectly!
    Thank you for sharing your view in this beautiful poem! !
    Ten out of 10!
    Wishing you all the best
