Comments and suggestions welcome and appreciated. Thanks.

Renewal

water and wind
elemental promises
born of God
spirit-wise
acting to humanize

beyond our ken
to shift and altar us
grounding fallenness
raising our reach
as we beseech

though half-aware
we know we are led
to seek the sky
while here below
longing for the reign-bow

Our appreciation and wonder at all of nature help us to realize that we are being led to a consciousness of a higher power.Thank you for sharing this beautiful and wonderfully inspiring poem.

Yes your words are deliberate and perhaps sometimes that elusive rainbow just seems to be where Judy Garland said: somewhere over the rainbow way up high......nice read and it talks to you and lets you talk back to it.............

A powerful content indeed. You speak through wisdom of ages that is well conveyed throughout the entire poem. Great job!

So glad you liked it; I wasn't sure anyone would get this one, it is kind of obscure. Thanks!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
