Emily Krauss

A Birds Eye View

Sitting on top
of the mountain

Staring at the view
of the city

And thinking
how blessed I am
to have a God
that created the beautiful earth

I've got a birds eye view of the world
from my spot perched on a rock
on the mountain top
and its making me reflect
upon life
and upon my faith
as a Christian

I close my eyes
and pray
to my heavenly father

I open my eyes
and blessed is how I feel
to have a birds eye view
of the world
around me

    I cite here your scintillating last eight lines:
    I close my eyes
    and pray
    to my heavenly father

    I open my eyes
    and blessed is how I feel
    to have a birds eye view
    of the world
    around me
    Most admired those sparkling words. God's Blessings in Abundance for you and your beloved family.

    This belongs still to my response for you, dear Poetess Emily.
    It reads as: Like you I have many gifts too, all got from God. I am truly happy to know you through Poem Hunter. You are a young woman constantly blessed by the Lord,
    Each day we get blessings from God. I tell you this since you believe in the same God as I do. He gives us those talents, Emily, only I cannot sew, knit and all that, like you, I sport too. I have enjoyed many of your poems. They are amazing!

    CONGRATULATIONS being chosen as The Member Poem Of The Day! 5 Stars
    Exactly like you I have done that in Serfaus, Austria, while skiing, I stopped for a while, a most beautiful white world's view of snow, at 2400 m high, I can imagine your situation, at such height amongst the mountain I prayed too, I know exactly how that felt: the reflections upon life and faith and that amongst such most beautiful surrounds where you reside,

    Hiking High In The Mountains

    hiking high in isolation mountains
    stopped to read passages in Psalms
    a long way from any other person
    feeling parts of Psalms were written
    in such wilderness glorious isolation

    'I've got a birds eye view of the world
    from my spot perched on a rock
    on the mountain top
    and its making me reflect
    upon life
    and upon my faith

    nature can do that, I remember hiking high in the mountains, I stopped to read Psalms, a long way from any other person, I have a feeling for those parts of Psalms written in wilderness isolation
