Prayer was his conditioned inclination, and a creative expression of what he was experiencing appeared as a poem in his journal. The first half of Emil's poem is shared with you below the photograph his much loved wife took on some previous nature joint expedition.
Rain and wind - play a tune - on the leaves.
It's a dirge - that tells how - my heart grieves.
So much time - have I spent - on what's wrong.
Now the woods - that are wet - sing my song.
Rain drops fall - just like tears - I have cried.
Gust of wind - are the sads - I have sighed.
But there's hope - that smells sweet - in the air.
Fresh and clean - in my life - is my prayer.
When he got back to the chalet and shared coffee with his wife, he picked up her guitar and rendered the poem to music. Emil and his guitar-talented friend, Kevin, hope to recored this new song at Bias Studios in Springfield, Virginia. Perhaps in a year or so it will appear as a track on their second joint CD of original inspirational music. Their first CD project, "Come Into the Presence", is in production now and will be released some time in September.
