Poem: The Numinous


By Dave Hood

On sunny afternoon
in Late August,
while strolling alone
in the woods,
contemplating my destiny,
I gaze at the dancing
Maple leaves, swaying trees,
notice a golden stream of light,
illuminating the pathway,
feel a soft breeze
brush against my skin,
faintly hear what sounds
like a Gregorian chant
of the flowing river
in the distance,
smell the fresh
scent of nature,
sense the presence
of “something other,”
as if the Divine is watching.
