(The Avenue at Middelharnis – Meindert Hobbema)
In nature’s cathedral
Gradual depressions skirt springs revival
Joy’s elevation rises towards an intimacy of truth
There in flat meadows, deep ditches of autumn stillness reflect the season’s pattern
Struggling to believe this kaleidoscope is by chance
Theoretical wisdom shrouding isolated lies
In God’s creation
Written for Poetry Jam and Poets United – Patterns
Joy’s elevation rises towards an intimacy of truth…nice grat line…and there is truth in this as well…it is def all calculated out…smiles.
I don’t believe this kaleidoscope is by chance….too perfect to be just chance. There is nothing like nature’s cathedral, I don’t think! So much to ponder in your words.
This is very well thought out and executed to perfection. It is also illustrated by one of my favourite paintings. Nice one Alan.
Alan, You are rocking the Fibonacci form! Your piece is visually appealing, literarily spot on and filled with imagery that makes us appreciate the patterns in this great, universally shared designed. I am so glad you shared today!
I like this whole thing Alan. The words, the meaning as well as the shape of the poem. And thanks for all the commenting you are doing these days!
Alan, visiting you another time. Just have to say that I am so impressed with your poetry and with your sense of community. You really DO ‘rock.’
Interesting and thought-provoking…….I believe the patterns of the world, the cosmos, our physical systems, are all far too intricate and magnificent to be random. It is those patterns that make me a Believer. Loved your poem. It made me think.
Agree-this is not a random accident of design…the perfection of logic is evident.Lovely poetic testament to God. What is this form ? Fibonacci or something else.
I like the way the line with the word ‘pattern’ is the turning point.
God;s creation is a beautiful miracle indeed.
Immaculate piece, Alan. God’s creation and His sense of dimension is terrific! Superb poem!
Thank you all for your kind comments and encouragement, i certainly enjoyed the poem.
fantastic fib sequence…to grow and end perfectly just like His creation..logical., perfect! 🙂
“Struggling to believe this kaleidoscope is by chance”. how much is chance and how much is really more planned with some chance
