In Fields of Nature--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

In Fields of Nature

A walk through fields of nature
Kindles my innermost feelings
With the spectacular beauty
Of God’s inspiring gifts…
Budding trees and wild flowers awake
With a refreshing signal that the life
Of springtime embraces again…
Fox prowl in tall grass, searching
For an early morning catch;
In nearby meadows, deer graze peacefully…
Birds’ melodies quicken my spirit
As they greet me with inviting songs;
A rainbow’s color after a sudden rain
Moves my soul with a satisfying praise…
I never cease to utter a thankful prayer
For the reaches of God’s beauty
In fields of nature.

  1. Beautiful write, John! You express what I experience on my 3 mile jog in early mornings. It is one on one with nature, it is a private "chat" with God, it is inspiring and motivating filling one with great energy and exuberance! You paint a beautiful word painting, I may not see the deer or the fox - but, I can feel them there! It fills me up! Sheri /
