POEMS: “Presence in landscape” by John O’Donohue


“Presence in landscape”


I am the wind which breathes upon the sea,

I am the wave of the ocean,

I am the murmur of the billows,

I am the ox of the seven combats,

I am the vulture upon the rocks,

I am a beam of the sun,

I am the fairest of plants,

I am the wild boar in valour,

I am the salmon in the water,

I am a lake in the plain,

I am a world of knowledge,

I am the point of the lance of battle,

I am the God who created the fire in the head.

Who is it who throws light into the meeting on the mountain? 

Who announces the ages of the moon?

Who teaches the place where couches the sun?

by John O’Donohue

    1. Yes, I have, but to tell you the truth dear Margaret, this summer we started camping, and now we are going almost every couple of weeks (this week-end we are going again) before the summer ends, and I try to follow so many blogs, but I mostly want to be in nature while the weather is nice. So I apologize I have not been as present this summer 🙂
      I know that September also will be quite busy for me, but as the fall arrives i will have more time to catch up 🙂 ❤
