More Precious Than Silver or Gold

More Precious than Silver or Gold
By Tara L. Ulrich

Glassy blue water
Still as the night

Hues of golden rays
Covering the island

On this sweet summer night
God’s master hand
Is evident.

A spotlight
Over the single cross
Planted years ago
On that island

This shining light
A reminder of all
Christ has done for us.

A peace forever
Settles over me;
A peace
That fills my soul.

I breathe in.
I breathe out.

An exhale captured
In the peacefulness
Of this place;
A golden ray of God’s goodness
Found on the shores of Lake Sakakawea.

A golden ray
Where lives are
Continually touched and changed
As God reminds those who enter here
Of their own worth;
That they are more precious
Than silver or gold.

  1. Oh, what a beautiful poem. I am thrilled that I have found a fellow poet! Dropping by to say “Howdy” from Coffee for Your Heart w/Holly Gerth

  2. Beautiful! I felt like I was right there with you on the lake. Water is one of the places where I love to connect to God. Lakes are so serene and calm, reminding me of His vast love for us. Thank you for linking at Holley Gerth’s place!
