A walk with Father Nature

"I want to share God's awesome creation that I have been blessed to experience in my life," the Rockford man wrote in the introduction to his blog, "Walk with Father Nature." "I will offer viewers opportunities to increase their awareness of nature through my writing, my photography and observations. I'll promote books to read, trails to hike, places to visit, and ways to look closer and deeper at nature. I hope to encourage my viewers to get outside and explore with curiosity — to be grateful for these gifts from God."

A poem ("Water Wheel Waiting") accompanied Havenga's photo at right:

late February, fresh snow

too fresh for animal tracks

water wheel on Honey Creek

held in winter's strong grip

partitions outlined in white

constant flow of clear water

endless flow of water

water flowing

water wheel

will turn again

will resume rotating

with the pulse of spring
