Response to Brenda's Word Prompt

This is my response to Brenda’s word prompt 'Proof' for week 11. While I was contemplating on the different scenarios for this prompt, I came across a variety of excellent responses by our Hubber friends. I was impressed by the creativity of our friends and felt my own attempt inadequate. I was not sure I could meet the challenge this week. Nevertheless I decided to share my output since I had spent considerable thought and time on it and hope Brenda and my other Hubber friends will find it of interest.

Proof of Divinity in Nature

When we see the multiple forms of life and the harmony with which they live with each other, the perfect rhythm with which creation progresses, the interconnectedness, interdependent web of life, we are assured of a power behind all this, which we variously call as the Creator, God or Almighty and to whom we owe this experience called life and to whom we need to be thankful and grateful.

This poem is about connecting to the divine through nature and expressing our gratitude to divinity for this life. Being in the midst of nature and admiring its beauty, we can experience the the divine work at play.

golden sunrise

The golden glow of the rising sun

The untainted air of dawn

The gentle caress of the breeze

Are proof of a creator divine.


A beautiful singing bird

Colorful wings of a butterfly

Green leaves on mighty trees

Fragrance of flowers in bloom


Spring Flowers

Spring Flowers

The melody of the river running by

The waves that dance on the shore

So much beauty around

Is proof he made them all.


The twinkling stars that brighten the night

And the moon glistening in all her glory

Nightingales singing a beautiful melody

All prove almighty’s artistry at work.

Sitting beneath the cool shade of the trees

Listening to the song of the birds

In the evening twilight

Gives me proof that I am alive.


Sometimes lying beneath stars

I thank God for this precious life

For every breath, for every moment

That proves that I am alive.

Hi John, thanks for the kind comments. Much gratitude. I have always felt this divine connection in nature and felt more alive in the natural world. So I made it the theme of my poem this time. You are an amazing poet John, there is no doubt about it. Yes it's true that it is not a contest. I actually enjoy this exercise and it is so much fun reading the different interpretations of the prompt. As you said they are all truly enlightening. Thanks again. Have a great day, stay blessed.

Thanks Brenda. You are doing a great job with these word prompts. Gives us an opportunity to try out different themes in poetry. It keeps our gray cells working, lol. I have always been inspired by your poetry, Brenda. Now we get a chance to try our hand at it too. Much gratitude. Stay blessed.

Vidya

Don't ever compare your words with others and worry.

We all have our own unique style of writing.

Your words are just as important as the next person's.

You did an excellent job so stop stressing and have fun writing.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on May 02, 2021:

Vidya,

This poem is awesome!

Nature so reminds me to take a moment and relax..being grateful for all things God has created.

That simple gentle breeze that alerts us that we are indeed alive.

The flowers, the water running down stream, the leaves on the trees...the stars in the night sky...all are natures way of connecting us to the divine.

I loved that picture of the pink spring flowers and the quotes too.

I often feel like I am connected through the divine beneath the stars to each one of you across the world.

Funny thing...we are all connected. Maybe it's through this very nature.

Great writing gal.

I will post a link in the article.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on May 02, 2021:

A beautiful poem and message, Vidya. We need to be grateful to the creator for all those things you mentioned.

I have felt the same as you at times in regard to partaking in certain challenges. I have read so many wonderful responses that I feel I can’t write anything as worthy.

But, you must remember it isn’t a contest and all responses are unique and how each writer interprets the prompt. They are all worthy and interesting to read. This was no exception.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 02, 2021:

Nature does remind us of the Almighty. I enjoyed the beauty of your poem and the message.

VIDYA D SAGAR (author) on May 02, 2021:

Thanks Misbah for the kind and encouraging words. It got delayed a bit because I was so overwhelmed reading the work of my dear Hubber friends, including your Misbah. Since I was already half way through it I though I would complete it. Your comments made my day. Stay blessed.

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on May 02, 2021:

A sublime piece of poetry, Vidya. I enjoyed reading it. You did an excellent job with Brenda’s prompt challenge.

“The melody of the river running by

The waves that dance on the shore

So much beauty around

Is proof he made them all.” Beautiful words!!

Blessings and Peace
