Through the Wilderness #NaPoWriMo2017 #GloPoWriMo2017

Through darkest valleys
Panting jackals
Marauding lions
Righteous paths
Lead me into
Green pastures
Within the wilderness
Quiet waters
Amid the parched land
A refuge for flocks
A stronghold
For the shepherd

The NaPoWriMo.net official prompt for Day 5 to write a poem that is based in the natural world: it could be about a particular plant, animal, or a particular landscape. But it should be about a slice of the natural world that you have personally experienced and optimally, one that you have experienced often. Try to incorporate specific details while also stating why you find the chosen place or plant/animal meaningful.

This contribution to Na/GloPoWriMo is based on images from the Psalms reflecting personal experience of the spiritual wilderness, and the certain hope of finding a way through.
