(563) An Awesome View

Rating: 3.9

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,

I love the picture it formed in my mind. Oh if I could see the eye of God in the shy half moon and look into rainbows and the mirrors of many rivers. Thank you for sharing, I saw with you.

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.

'God's gift to man are these wondrous awesome views'..... sumarizes the wonderful creations of God which you have laid opened to us in full view, reminding us of His love, made us realized our inequities and our insensitivity towards our fellowmen. In this poem you also have taught us that life is worth living if we only learn to appreciate what God has done for us. Great poem Melvina! Highest Marks. You are an inspiration to us all.Thank you.

In your poem you managed to depict the beauty of the nature, the miracle of life that surrounds us.This was the most beautiful gift that God, the creator of humanity, could give to His creatures...And I can feel all these things in your poem :)

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
