AWESTRUCK
For the mind of God is change itself;
Evening came and morning came first day,
And so light changes everything.

Colour, brilliance, sparkle and truth,
Chiaroscuro, balance, management,
And the order of challenge in life.

The seed, the sprig, the sapling;
The tree the bees the bud the flowers,
A dynamism of necessary coexistence.

The rain on the roof and umbrella tops;
The sun, the oceans wide and deep
And clouds above to make of us awestruck.

NOTE Evening came and morning came: the first day - Genesis 1:5

  3. Yes, I am awestruck by the beauty of the world, which tells me there is for sure a Higher Power.

  5. Awesome! "Awestruck" is a great reminder that along with Light comes "the order of challenge in life." Love! Each list (stanza) is engaging and empowering. You bring the Biblical text into the present.
