Walking home from school;
The chill of winter air
Reminds of Christmas coming soon.
Spinning circles;
Happiness for a ten year old.

Dancing in the ocean waves;
Orange and pink sunset overhead.
Climbing high to see the sky
Reflected in the crashing waves;
Pausing in its beauty.

Bedtime on a summer evening;
Open windows with white curtains.
Fireflies glowing in the dusk;
Neighbors playing basketball,
Laughing in the night.

So long I have searched for You;
Looking for Your divine beauty,
And I have grown tired.
Just when I thought
I could look no more
You whisper in my ear
Like an old friend.

I embrace you
Within your childhood memories.
I dance with you
Through the ocean waves,
And paint my love in the sky.
I smile at you in the evening
With a fireflies glow,
And kiss your face
With a summer wind.

Looking at it I wonder,
Could anything be more beautiful?

This was a joy to read! Remembering such things brings a smile. It is a little confusing when the POV goes from the worshipper to the Lord. Overall, nicely done!

Simple, lovely images, creating a very tender mood! You warmed my heart with the love between Father and child. There are a couple of things you might do to indicate to the reader that the POV has changed. Italics work for some; others insert that actual address: "Dear Father," and "My Child.." In any case, you have a strong poetic gift! I look forward to reading more.

One of my winners for this level (see the message boards)! Super piece.
