 “My profession is to always be alert,

To find God in nature, to know God's lurking places,

To attend to all the oratorios and the operas in nature.”


Henry David Thoreau



Easter morning, in old New Mexico

What a wonderful place to celebrate

Like Thoreau, I find God in Nature

And, I never have very long, to wait


I wake my slumbering spouse at dawn

And tell her that we don’t want to be late

For Easter Services, in the Organ Mountains

A time for its re-birth, a time for us to celebrate


And very soon, we both behold a wondrous service

In the very ancient Organ Mountains, this Easter Morn

The winged choir begins singing, the sky is heavenly blue

Lovely, fragrant, yellow wildflowers, are now being re-born


And very soon, as we both now peer all around us

We both thank God, for allowing us this Easter sight

And, we wonder if all those inside man-made churches

Could ever possibly feel such a joyous, uplifting, delight


Easter Morning, in God’s Mountains,

What a wondrous place to celebrate;

Like Thoreau, I find God in Nature,

And, I never have very long, to wait.



©Easter Morn 2010, Mr. Ed

You always find the best of quotes and places. That Thoreau one is a favorite of mine, so I copied it to paste in my notepad. So what is with you and New Mexico, a love affair I guess. Can't say I've had the pleasure but I can see she is a lovely place...
Enjoy, Mike

I don't know where those mountains are but I had a great week at Santa Fe. Beautiful.

I drove by a lake going to church Sunday morning and told my wife it would be so much more perfect at the little island near the side of that lake.

Well said, thanks to you, nature and Henry David Thoreau.

Very well expressed and also captures a lot of my own sentiments...I saw God in a sunrise Easter morning...that was my church and my smile was my prayer.
