Is it possible to find a poem that reads like a devotional?
Yes, there is a poem called “Nature Sketch” written by me.
As most authors would testify, they usually write their books firstly for themselves.
Similarly, I wrote my poem as a way to inspire, encourage and express myself, hopefully in a way that befits the subject.
But I realised that by publishing it as a book, I can also inspire and encourage others.
So what is “Nature Sketch” all about?
“Nature Sketch” is a poem about the Twelve Apostles in Victoria, Australia.
It is written to serenade the “silent sentries”, also known as the 12 Apostles, a nickname for the intriguing coastal landforms located along Great Ocean Road.
It invites readers to relish the gems found within the narrative about Nature’s work of art and develop a love and appreciation for the beauty of Nature.
Interestingly, it also has a theme about the struggles of Nature’s last bastions through trials and tribulations that speak of bravado, resilience and triumph.
The poem thus serves as an allegory, which anyone can relate to and draw inspiration from, and ultimately find hope in overcoming challenges in their own lives.
The Kindle edition is available here.
