This is very beautiful!! I like the sentiment and the escape feel in this poem. It's nice to meet another Christian believer that has the same similar faith in God. This poem is simple but true in its words and meaning. I like the images and the fresh water picture. We can experience God just about everywhere I think if we look close enough. :0)) I'd like to award this one too for its level of faith and promotion of the Creator in quality descriptions. Best,

    OMGsh. . .thank you again, Ross. This was a fun write. I enjoy worshiping in church but my favorite places to talk to God is in the great outdoors. I've been blessed to have eye-opening experiences with God at both the ocean and among the tall trees deep in the forest. So nice to have a friend on the same track. I appreciate your comments. . .and the stars. :)

Hello there, Moongirl

I don't know what God you believe to be true, as there are so many of them, but I agree with you that when we find ourselves in these beautiful settings, we feel as if something 'other' is there too.

Quite lovely :)

kind regards

tracey

    Hi Tracy, I personally don't think it matters which God people believe in to appreciate the solace, the beauty and the power one feels walking at the ocean's edge or in the forest. Thank you for your comment and all the stars. :)

    I would, but I live in the heart of London, you know, the land of umbrellas and red buses, and I'm sitting here in front of my laptop with the heating in full blast with no clothes on, apart from my odd socks :)

    We in California are experiencing cooler than normal weather as well but I'll be wearing clothes and saving on electricity. Spring is on the horizon.

    I shouldn't complain really. We are lucky to have any sun at all, here in London. Come winter, summer, spring or autumn! :)

    The globe appears to be heading towards a bit of a catastrophy :(

    Ah well... Shit happens as they say at the kitty litter production line :)

This haiku, Experience God, presented as a 5-7-5, suggests a couple ways for one to take in nature and understand the universe. The comma is in the wrong spot, and would be better eliminated anyway for this poem. Happy day.

    You know, I just looked at it again. . .and I do think you are right, it's not needed at all. Thanks for the feedback and the stars.

Thank you for sharing this poem. There are the traditional syllables in this poem: 5-7-5, although I sent my poems with this syllable count to a publication called Failed Haiku and was rejected. The editor told me that in English the 5-7-5 was not correct for haiku. So in essence, I failed at Failed Haiku! What a rejection, huh? (I still prefer the 5-7-5 syllable count.) Have a blessed Good Friday and Easter!

    Thank you for your comments, they made me laugh. I'm kind of flying by the seat of my pants at Haiku as well, no rejections yet. :) Have a blessed Easter. Thanks for the stars too. :)

Man and Nature, relationship established, thoughts explored and expressed, stories finished with satori or 'aha' effect is put logically or exposed so the end purpose of a haiku is restricted; well said, well done. Thank you for sharing. Keep Writing Inspire Changing -- DR ALCREATOR

Beautiful! This almost reminds me of some of Wordsworth's poetry. We should spend more time in nature to be renewed and acknowledge the God of creation.

MGW,

Ahhhh... This is a lovely piece with a great message. Though I'm not quite sure it truly qualifies as a haiku, it certainly pleases all my sensibilities and makes me think about otherworldly and better things... and what is more nobler than that? Thanks and good luck!

    One other person mentioned it was non-Haiku but it is about nature, so we'll see. They seem to be a little relaxed on following prompt rules. I keep trying on Haiku. . . but close is only good in horseshoes. :)
    Thanks for your comments and the stars.

A very well-written poem about a walk in nature that are able to clear the cobwebs from our minds and hear God's voice clearly and see a way through our day when we return.

I love the idea that enjoying the beauty of nature is a way of experiencing God. This is a charming Haiku, backed by a perfect photo, and I wish you luck in the contest.

    thank you for your kind words. . .I so agree. I'd rather be in nature than be in a church building (but church is second best). :)
