He Was Simply Gone; God Took Him
I walked today and went for miles,
Should be routine.
It is spring and the sun is out,
Making the temperature just warm
Enough so that one doesn't need
To wrap against the elements, but
Not so hot that one is annoyed.
I was looking down at the road,
Pondering the past as we too often do.
When I happened to look up,
As we don't often do nearly enough,
I marveled at the crowds of trees, with
Birds dashing and chirping from one to another
Of the myriad of brown and green perch choices.
There are wondrous things to notice on a walk.
What an incredible passing, I thought,
Either now or when it is time.
In the transition of spring,
From this world into the next.
Let me just leave my body behind
And then carry on with the walking that
Should be routine.
Audio of Enoch Walked Steadily With God…
As the story in the Bible goes, Enoch was a friend of God and walked and talked with Him daily. One day, when he was walking with God, Enoch just disappeared. God took him. Enoch was one of the only two people in the Bible that didn't go through the process of death. Elijah, who was taken up in a chariot of fire, was the other.
No matter how we leave this Earth, it will happen. This poem talks, quite simply about passing to the spiritual realm by taking a walk and just keep on going without the assistance of the human body. There is no great lesson here, nothing to really think about. It is just a fantasy. Or is there really something to think about? Opinions? skp
SECOND: Some of my readers have advised me that if you have an email account with Gmail, you may have difficulty getting the notices for the blog updates. Apparently Gmail puts me into spam. So, if you haven't been getting my notices, check your spam file and get me out of there!
FINALLY: I have been doing a little fund raising with my books. It seems to be working out. So, if you are interested in significant discounts in the cost of a large number of books for a worthwhile cause, let me know. Or, if you would like to include one of my books in with the cost of the next tea you give, let me know. We will talk. Email, Susan Patterson <susan@EarleneGrey.com> skp
