Come Rest

Gazing into the washed rose pink sky
mottled with wispy clouds drifting by
there on the wavering horizon
a majestic steeple arising
above purple fog crawling
an omen beckoning and calling
Come, rest within hallowed peaceful halls
your prayers answered within these sacred walls.

  1. Absolutely beautiful…and a unique way to include the word steep. I’m reminded of the small rural towns where the steeple does indeed welcome people…and is a welcome fixture on an otherwise unremarkable and flat horizon.

  2. Steeples point toward the heavens, you paint first the heavens to bring our focus to the steeple
    “Gazing into the washed rose pink sky
    mottled with wispy clouds drifting by”
    (Stunning!)
    Giving our skyward gaze its purpose, to gather us together at this nexus, I picture inside the walls heads are bowed focusing inward to find God in the Rest rather than the sky – Lovely colors too.
