Poet's Solace - Poem by Paul Sebastian

Between tropical trees I walk
On an old jeep-paved track
Towards the frequented waterfall
Where gushing water breaks
Into stream of gentle claps

Cool breaths soothe my spirit
Nature wrapped, I set to meditate
In God’s presence, I set to entreat
His mercy that constantly radiates

Feathered creatures sing in the trees
Over rocks, butterflies playfully flutter
My cheeks kissed by a gentle breeze
Nature embraced, I float in pleasure

Cool breaths soothe my spirit
Nature embraced, I contemplate
On my life’s journey incomplete
Of vision, mission I had made

With my heart poised, contended
Thankful for Lord’s presence
I paced back home, rejuvenated
Solaced by an encounter in silence
