Three Poems and a Mountain Landscape

Posted by John Freeland

Mountain Landscape with Rainbow by Caspar David Friedrich

“…the stones would shout out” (Luke 19:38-40)

The artists, writers, poets, and others (even scientists) have long sensed a connection between the full spectrum of human emotions and its perceived expression in nature. The result is use of nature with all that it offers: ocean depths, weather, seasons, rivers, deserts, rocks, fertile fields, birds, sun, darkness, etc., as a metaphore for the times of our lives.

I admire those writers, too many to list, who are keen observers of nature – and know how to use it. Here are Three Poems by Steve Meador.
