I Walk on Water--By Connie Marcum Wong--United States

I Walk on Water

I walk on water…
I feel the coolness of the rolling waves
Splash beneath my feet.
I watch the sun sprinkle diamonds across the sea.
I float above the clouds and feel the radiant warmth
Of the sun bless my body.

I feel the power of the wind caress or twist
And break anything into submission.
I rise above the towering Alps…snowcapped and pristine.
I enjoy a fragile flower sharing the faint scent of heaven.
I know the grandeur of the Sequoias…ever growing.
I blend with verdant pastures and
Serene rolling hills in misty rain.

I know the secrets of the deep dark abyss.
I sense the moon’s tenderness and share in her emotions.
I flow with the clever rivers seeking new exciting paths.
I form a shimmering rainbow in waterfalls.
I am free to be the wind, the earth, the sea,
While all you see is me.

  4. Dear Connie,
    I enjoyed the aerial view of special sites you created with your words. (Sometimes I dream of flying and see such views.) In your poem you seem to be one with nature: "the wind, the earth, the sea." What a special feeling that is! It was a treat to take this journey above the Earth with you, Connie. An amazing poem!
