Painting Daylight





The sun came up, dazzled the earth for approx. 15 minutes, then slipped behind a bank of clouds...

Ruby whisper fans the air
Darkness melts beneath a sigh
Ravishing the eastern sky
Morning trembles like a prayer

Night recedes; its sable span
Brims with kind proof of heaven’s grace
As nameless pigments interlace
And we cry out, ‘oh, what is man?’

Oh, what is man that He should please
Our gaze with wonders such as this?
Filling night’s void with mercy’s kiss
On grand, unfathomed galaxies

Where ruby whispers swell, expand
As we behold with awestruck heart
The Master of celestial art
Painting daylight across the land
