Fully Here

This Good Earth

The grass so green,
Emeralds can’t quite cut it,
I raise my eyes.
Sunshine stuns.
I am in this world completely.
It nourishes me and holds me.
God’d goodness is here displayed.
His nurture and care is here displayed.
This good earth is here to love.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
