Glory

Lord, how becoming are you in my eyes?
Becoming as the sunshine in the skies
and, like the sacred eagle when she flies
above the tides of men, their schemes, their lies
and, basking be, she must believe, Most Wise,
a world exists beyond our mortal ties,
a world beyond our own, the greatest prize
that baffles even skeptics, otherwise,
the face of earth is but a mere disguise
and eagles still find warmth in distant suns.


God bless,
Lighthouse Bob

Beautifully done Bob.  Nice to read one of yours this evening.

Reality strikes in this wonderfully penned piece, Bob.  Who are we that God should consider us?  There is so much more than
what we're caught up in here.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

God bless,
Rae

Sharon,

Glad you enjoyed reading one of my poems and, um, considering the lines that you chose to highlight, I do think you, perhaps, picked up on a bit of my satire.

Thanks again and God bless,
-Bob

Rae,

Smiles. Yes, there is. Yes, there certainly is so much more when we consider that that which we have Faith in and percieve through spiritual eyes is so much more real than that which we see through the natural.

Thanks for your reply and God bless,
-Bob
