FOR MY SOUL, National Poetry Writing Month, Poetry, Spiritual


“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls;

all your waves and breakers have swept over me.”  

Psalm 42:7

roaring creek

I seek quiet rest in the roar of your waterfall

I soak gentle peace into my weary bones

I wash my soul in your crashing thunder

I drink in your ebb and flow

Divine sustenance for tomorrow

Note: this was inspired by the Roaring Creek at Fairhaven ministries in Roan Mountain, Tennessee.  The creek roars loudly and you can hear it from your cabin or chalet.  It is a very peaceful place and going there restores my soul.  There is a waterfall, but I do not have a picture of the fall; the above picture is a section of Roaring Creek.
