Artist: Adam Jones

God’s Palette
by Linda L. Dowd

Tones of earthy colors
are mixed with cobalt blues.
God paints us from His palette
of Earth and Heaven hues.

Magenta aspirations
with splashes of rustic taupe.
Dashes of pinks and indigos
and purple strokes of hope.

Dreams in pastel peaches
with squeezes of lemon-lime.
Aquamarine from spirit seas
~ Gold and greens sublime.

Reds of fire and passion,
Blues that calm the soul.
Silver protects and lifts us,
Orange brings joy to whole.

Upon a barren canvas,
with Spirit tincts He painted.
Creating art ~ from Divine Spark,
~ Unsullied and untainted.

The auras from these pigments,
bring Light to darkest spaces.
They are part of our Origin
and reflect His love and graces.

A kaleidoscope of colors
lays before our eyes.
~ From gardens bright with flowers
~ To swirling, sorbet skies.

We all are works in progress.
Each one’s a work of art.
A corona-painted canvas
~ For of God, we are a part.

Tones of earthy colors
are mixed with cobalt blues.
God paints us from His palette
of Earth and Heaven hues.

Beautifully rendered, the different hues needed to make the world and certain emotions all combined to wordpaint a fine, uplifting poem.

  Beautiful concept, Linda.  Your poetry has grown so much over the years... it's been amazing and wonderful to watch.  

What a gallery heaven will be with all God's works of art in it.  Thank you for the glimpse.

It's so easy to appreciate the gardens and sometimes so hard to accept ourselves... but we're all His. *S* And what a lovely reminider you've written! *S*

That photo of me was taken by one of my friends with her cell phone when she took me out to lunch recently. I'm glad you like it!

Thank you for that lovely Linda-reply!  

There is so much in that photo, Linda, and, in my humble opinion, it is the most beautiful photo I have seen of you - all the others were beautiful, but there is something - no, many things - in this one - a serenity, a maturity an intense wisdom, a strength in your gentleness, a sense that you know so much more than the rest of us, besides, of course, your incredible Miss USA beauty (actually more than just a Miss USA beauty - because your inner beauty shines through your outer beauty even more then it did before).  I am just not putting my finger on all the things I see there, but that doesn't negate that they are there.

Hugs

Such a pleasure for the eyes, for the heart, for the soul, my dear Angelo Terrestre. I can feel God's smile shining through each of your wonderful words.

And oh, I agree, the new photo of you pierces the monitor and touches the heart with its stunning beauty.

Love you,
Margherita
