About the Poem

After struggling through the day, trying to figure out the ups and downs, when it seems those inner battles just won't stop, I often find the answers in solitude. And so often with the peace of the night, come the answers, in the most glorious ways.

Evening's Answers

As the scarlet sunset slowly fades,
And dusk introduces the night,
The crescent moon on center stage,
Gives forth a semblance of light.
Perching on the mossy dock,
Staring out at the mirrored lake,
I reflect on this new battle,
Unsure of which road to take.
In this dark serenity,
I humbly look up to You,
Asking for Your guidance,
To show me what I must do.
Gulls appearing as angels,
Are soaring through the skies,
A congregation of wispy clouds,
Have taken control of my eyes.
Billowing sleeves of purest white,
Seem coming through the haze,
Majestic, gentle, outstretched arms,
At once command my gaze.
Asking for some answers,
You've come with Your embrace,
Through the just born evening,
You've filled me with Your grace.
The water without a ripple,
Reflects this scene from above,
A most magnificent masterpiece,
Painted wholly with Your love.

This poem touched me becuase because i think that every one is looking for answers. This poem reminded that God will always be the one to gie me the answers i need in life,not Dr. Phil or oprah. The only one is God.

This poem brings a vivid picture to my mind, as if I were the one there. It also brings a calmness to my heart. Thank you for expressing your heart in words.

It is a wonderful thing to know that God is speaking to lowly men like you and me. I am task with the wonderful job of speaking into the lives of God's Children, and you are task with speaking into the hearts of servants like me. When I read poems like this, it gives me courage as I borrow some of the descriptive phrases, that you and other poets use to describe God's world. I have looked many times into the heavens, using the calm waters as a looking glass. It is a wonderful thing to get quiet before God in the cool of the evening as it is growing dark. Thank you so much for the message. God's Best to you as you continue to be used with your wonderful gift. Pastor Don Jackson

I really love this site- I too write poetry- to me it is a picture- a song- a feeling that touches you to the core- I love to look at a sunset or dewdrops on spiderwebs and flowers and then let inspiration take over. I thank the friend who shared this site with me.

I loved this poem. It's really kind of strange, but this weekend I was out photographing a Japanese garden and some of the words I used to describe my photos are the same words you used in your poem. It's very touching and it places me back at that peaceful garden.
