Strong limbs raise a friendly wave
and nod at passing clouds.
Whispered murmur, evening's breeze
returns the cordial sign.
Currents of yesterday mixed with tomorrow
weave comfortable robes of cooling mist.
Frog chorus antiphonies make echoes
through the woodsy halls,
while birds sing evensong
over rhythmic insect buzz.
Grass, leaves, vines...a wild tangled green.
Vibrant carpets. Lushness of life.
The atmosphere charged with tranquil vitality.
A dangerous peace
that pushes out all unclean things
The Spirit’s gift.
Hallelujah is a direct cry of joyful praise, meaning Praise Yahweh,
while calling others to also join in joyful praise of our Lord.
Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, O my soul!
I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I
have my being.
