A restless soul looking for peace.


I looked to the hills
  The valley below
For peace and rest
  Balm for my soul

I looked in the skies
  The clouds they made
But night would come

  The skies would fade


I pondered the stars --

  The Milky Way

But stars would die

  At break of day


I looked with my heart
  For One, Who's meek
And found close by
  The One I seek


My soul is at peace
  Why should I fear?
My soul is at rest
  When God is near

 © August 1980, S. K. Smith

What a thrilling poem, Susan! I missed it in July, but was very encouraged by your words today.

Your poem provides us the reality of life. In faith we learn our fate. We do not need to find the meaning of life anywhere, it has been with us since the time we saw the first light. And I can see that you found it already.

Enjoy life to the fullest.

I bought and read your new book, Sam at the Crossroads, where this poem is found. She said that, knowing I am interested in the geology of the northwest, I would find some interesting information in your book.

She was correct. I recognize the region you describe in the book and did find that aspect of the book most interesting, but I have to admit that I enjoyed the story as well. You have an interesting character in Sam and I enjoyed meeting her and sharing her "adventures". Thanks for the good read. I look forward to your next publications.
