God’s Promise

Cathy Jeanes 

Across the vast expansive sky,

making its way in colours fly —

rose, golden, green and violet.

Arching its hue in feline stretch,

above the trees,

against the clouds.

Rain and sunbeam joining hands-

to celebrate the season change.

Molding land to sky above —

dance with the Creator — the message, Love.

Across the years in time and space,

making our way in peace and grace.

Poised on the rim of firmament-

stretching our minds in endless search-

above the earth’s 

vast stratosphere-

God with man, made manifold,

to strengthen souls with faith untold.

Molding man to realms above —

dance with the Creator-the message, Love.

Glorious

Rebecca Clifford

last night I wanted to wake you

  wake you

to tell of the stunning sapphire butterfly 

resting on the squash leaves, the

sunglow blossoms

  flexing flexing flexing wings 

I wanted to 

but it was dark

and His sapphire wouldn’t have been as glorious

outside my dream
