GOD’S AMAZING GRACE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/12

Each morn the sun shines from the east

Creating morning’s sunshine feast

You’ll view it coming down the street

Moving as though on turtle feet.

At last arriving at the door

The windows bathed in sun galore

To flood the room with so much bright

That some are blinded by the sight.

Pure yellow midst each sunlight’s glow

And magnified as it will show

The colors spread all through the space

A part of God’s amazing Grace !

 

 

 

EMPTY CANVAS ( 2017 ) 2017/12/18

Lives are like the canvas all white and clear

That too soon begins to cloud up with fear

Add a hint of ochre as we all grow

With colors God paints into each rainbow

If circles or squares lapse into the breach

May they be beyond lost destinies reach.

 

As each canvas becomes part of the dream

Of what we’ve reached for or where we have been

Or the brushes get tired or weather worn

Take care we don’t all get tattered or torn !

Observe the sky, today it’s gray

And changes colors day by day

But now is winter time and so

We can’t be sure what hues will show.

The golden glows of summertime

Do verge upon a scene sublime

I most prefer the plums and pinks

Especially as sundown sinks.

I wonder if the Lord can see

How glorious His sky must be

To all of us who looking up

Adore His overflowing cup ?

The morn awakes and  yawns aloud

The sky is clear, there’s ne’er a cloud

A breeze o’erhead begins to blow

We’re in the midst of autumn’s show.

Her colors changing every day

Glow brighter still along the way

How wonderful God’s palette is

Creating pigments, He’s a whiz !

 

HE DOES NOT LIE ( 2017 ) 2017/04/06

Whatever is it that I spy

Is that a rainbow in the sky,

The colors are so crisp and clear

Is it the first for me this year ?

Those seven colors that I see

Bring such great joy to giddy me

Red, orange, yellow, green and blue

Indigo and violet too.

Quite a vision that all may share

I wish that I could fly up there

And touch that rainbow God did paint

To find out if it is or ain’t.

God left His mark there in the sky

Reminding us He does not lie !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SHADES OF GRAY ( 2015 ) 2015/01/20

The colors of the rainbow bright

They run amuck from dark to light

No shades of gray for us to find

For who of us is color blind ?

The madness of the world about

Has tendencies to rage and shout

They cannot see or do not note

What color to us each connotes.

I’d like to think my world could be

Bathed in true colored harmony !

 

GOD’ S PALETTE ( 2014 ) 2014/02/06

We search for the rainbow to show

These colors wherever we go

The blue for the calm of the sky

The yellow to keep our hope high

Green to remind us of rebirth

And brown like the color of earth.

There’s purple to honor our love

Of God and the angels above

While red brings great passion to life

With orange to challenge the strife.

Now lavender favors our past

The pink helps the sweetness to last.

The chartreuse works to calm the mind

But aqua seeks patience to find

The peach has a wonderful glow

And the gray, the wisdom to know.

I think the magenta’s the best

It outshines the whole of the rest

I wonder if God wore a coat

Would pale lily capture His vote ?
