Earth began
By the touch of God's hand
Oceans parted to form the dry land
God loves beauty, as do I
He turned to the task
Of creating the sky
Sprinkled the stars
In careless abandon
Created galaxies from silken cobwebs
Wrought with His own hands
The liquid fire of the sun
Carved out the moon
From an angel's wish or two
All the while
Knowing
Seeing
Feeling
How the moon's soft light
Would be spiritual healing
He captured the diamonds
Of a million angel tears
In a gauzy cocoon of whispers
He painted the Earth
With a fine sable brush
Each color
Shade
Nuance
Just but a hinting
To what lies before
On that glorious day
When we enter Heaven's door
Remember this well
Fellow Earth dweller
We are all but guests
On this quirk of God's imagination
Be gentle with her
Our beautiful green Earth
Cast your gaze upon the Sky
Lift your face
To feel the angel tears
Let the moon kiss your skin at night
Make a wish upon each star
Take the joy in this life
Open your mind
God is in everything
The Earth and the Sky

Beautiful, not-so-simply beautiful.

Patience is a virtue, but virtue has never been one of my redeeming qualities.

Welcome Isabelle, I loved this poem. I too stand in awe of God's handiwork
