The scenic life in a crystal blue lake. Poetry
The ripple effect
Have you ever thrown a rock into a crystal blue lake?
Pleasantly amazed at the amount of ripples one tiny rock can make,
and when the ripples clear you see the beauty the lake has to give
All different creatures and the secret places they choose to live
As you look farther into the deep
You watch the playful little tadpoles playing hide-and-go-seek
Then suddenly you see mister turtle moving oh so slow
He's not in a hurry just moving along with the flow
The fish darting in and out of all their treasured places
All different colors, all with tiny puffed up faces
If you look closely you might see a slithering snake swimming near by,
and in the distance you see a lofty black crow fly
Then you see the far reaching shadow of a weeping willow tree
All of God's creations living in perfect harmony
Everything thriving in a quiet serene place
No one in a hurry. No one trying to win the grand slam race
As I watch this spectacular splendor I ask myself why
We humans can't live together under God's heavenly sky?
We were meant to live together in perfect harmony
Just like the creatures who live in the lake and the deep blue sea
History tells us " It's only natural for man to want to excel,
but is it really natural for man to maim and kill?
Let's all slow down and be happy, be thankful we're still living in a land that's free
Vow to fight no more wars is my prayerful plea
As the daylight dims and nighttime grows near
I leave this place of tranquility and vow to return when I seek peace from worldly fear.
