Walnut Woods Sunrise

Walking in the morning pre-dawn light

Waiting for the sun to resume its flight

Hearing the birds chirping familiar tunes

Feeling happy that spring will arrive soon

Stepping briskly along the charming path

Anticipating the sun bringing a warm bath

Seeing the shadows change and dance

Clearing a mind from its dormant trance

Witnessing God’s immense creation at dawn

Blessing with unique images that it spawns

Dashing in front goes a frightened rabbit

Making his morning visit a welcome habit

Dreaming of walking here each and every day

Picturing a scenic sunrise so appealing to say

Lifting above the distant horizon to bring a delight

Radiating sunrise brightens the morn with its light

The photo was taken at sunrise last fall at Walnut Woods Metro Park in central Ohio.  I am looking forward to witnessing more sunrises in the coming weeks as the spring weather allows me to walk outside more often.

Do you enjoy a favorite time or place to walk and experience God’s creation?

  1. Beautiful photo and words! My favorite time to experience God’s creation is early in the morning at sunrise. The light is slowly getting brighter and all the birds are chirping… it’s amazing!

  2. I have been out many times at sunrise walking along the trails. As I read your poem I felt that I was on one of my favorite trails, and a rabbit also jumped out in front of me as they so often do. Your words drew me right into the poem—Beautiful!!

  3. My favorite place to enjoy the presence of God is at a walking park in a small town, Cameron NC. I don’t know what it is about Phillips Park but I go there to get as close as I can to my Father in heaven.
