A Poem from Rick Davis | PAROUSIA Magazine

Dreaming of Eden
Falling asleep softly
I watch fresh new leaves
On the twigs of trees.
An owl is perched on the
Bony branch above.
The sun sets
And whirling waters flow
From the crystal clear brook.
Lying on the thick blue-green wild grass
I watch stars
Breathing in Eden’s millionth star
And my heart laughs
Watching the sailing light of clouds.
Ascending seabirds fly
And the cooling breeze
Plays secret celestial music –
Great is the earth
Delivering Divine words
As I notice delicate blue blossoms
On a sleepy winding tree.
