Poetry by God

God writes his poetry on sky and sea
He scrawls on halls of green with amethyst
Or on a lily’s upturned face, dew-kissed
Or in the weeping sigh of willow tree

God’s poetry drips where rain-minstrels sing
From russet autumn afternoon, the fell
Afire with a dying day’s farewell
It murmurs in a brook’s meandering

It broods in blue of winter dusk, in hues
Of lavender, blush, bronze, a flower-storm
Splashed on a hill, his wordless poems charm
The troubadour that pen and ink pursues

God spills His poetry freely to us
The sky, the land and sea proclaim it thus

Through God' poetry we catch a glimpse of who He is...

 All the earth will worship You, And will sing praises to You; 
They will sing praises to Your name." Selah.  
Come and see the works of God, 
Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.

Wishing you a worship-full day!
