An Early Winter Light

Shimmered light illumines grasses 
Flowing o’er the mountain plains
Angus cattle dotted masses
Stud the glorious morning scene

Hoarfrost, snow skiffs kiss the meadows
Trees and all above ground things
Wear new luminescent garments
Ethereal, ephemeral bling

Filling space ‘twixt earth and heaven
How can one rightly describe
Beauty beyond words or pictures
Light inviting, “Come abide”

Surely heaven’s glory’s spilling
Mirrored glow of grand design
Calling us to higher mountains
Promised dwellings so sublime


Psalms 72:3 NKJV
“The mountains will bring peace to the people, And the little hills, by righteousness.”

Isaiah 52:7
‘How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”’

Isaiah 54:10
“For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed, ”Says the Lord, who has mercy on you.”

Habakkuk 3:19
“The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills.“
