Sounds In Nature

Who has heard the whispers in the wind.
The stories of the prophet Adam?
He, it is said, talked to the Creator.

Does not the earth rumble with Eve's legacy?
Has one ever heard "Sophia" mumbled quietly?
Or, are her voices now dead to time?

Have the mountains told you of Abraham?
The despiser of the confusion...
... confusion between Creator and creation, no?

sounds-in-nature

Or, what of Moses? The water parting.
Did he not find the one who am prior to was?
The image of Akenaten some say.

And, we have read about King David.
The man who is thought to have bathed in sin,
and washed that sin away in his own tears.

Is Lehi's son Nephi forgotten...
... forgotten to the burrowing critters?
His teachings seen in the rays of the moring sun.

John the Baptizer has testimony.
Can't we see it in the movements of the waters?
Or, in the splash of an innocent's blood?

Oh, the heavens and almost all the earth...
... the earth has heard of Jesus the Nazarene.
His memory walks between our dreams.

Muhammad's name is chanted throughout the land.
Men speak of how he listened to the angel Gabriel.
The man who ate the words of an archangel.

sounds-in-nature

If we place our ear to the ground,
we might discover Joseph Smith Junior's legacy.
His righteousness is rarer than fine gold, no?

Who among us is like Thomas S. Monson?
A man who valued every tear shed by a woman.
Is this not someone to be revered by the saints?

What is inside of the wind's breaths?
Why do the many mountains care to suggest?
When should the notes of the trees be respected?

Eric Dierker,

I hope you guys have a load of fun. I was listening to one of my church leaders speak about how it is not the end goal, but the journey that matters.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on September 09, 2019:

A good low in pressure. So cool. But that invites the westerly Santa Anna. Which can mean disaster. We have not cleaned up/washed up so it is a great day to "water" down and around. By end tomorrow not a weed or dry leaf will remain. It just is.

Eric Dierker,

The leaves cooling... it sounds divine. The smell in the air this time of years... I love it all so much. I always have. Hopefully no wildfires over there. Have you had concerns about this in your own area? I hope not.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on September 06, 2019:

The pleasure friend is all mine. We just sat and listened to leaves cooling. Yes that is a real sound of nature. They "un-crinkle" after the sun. The smokey smell and winds are lightening up. Maybe no wildfires today.

Eric Dierker,

Remission is amazing! I hope that it keeps healing! I'm so happy for you.

The circle of life, man. That's awesome. What's your favorite bird?

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on September 06, 2019:

Fantastic friend,

We did some freelance Cricket work. They are thriving. How fun and what a sound that is all nature. Cancer in remission and my boy and I going off the charts with fun.

Crickets we have are real loud - the sound of nature! The Crickets eat the spiders, the birds eat the crickets. So I reckon we are doing super duper.

Earth Remembers. Great Poem

Miebakagh Fiberesima from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on June 14, 2019:

Hi, Guckenberge, this is a lovely poem, but of deeper meditation. What I like most is the tears of King David washing away his sins. A tear is water and no doubt John the Baptist advice we do wash away our sins in the river. I like the entire poem with all the images. Thanks for sharing.
