He Loves the Beauty

He sits and watches over,
All the essences below,
On the spinning world's stage,
By minutes and age to age.

He made the nature patterns,
His prose hangs in the sky,
Written by the winter birds,
And by the trees standing by.

From corner to corner,
He's a clever clever God,
His hand covers diamond stars,
Yet is even in the sod.

Daily the earth he drowns
With purest beauty known,
Streams spill laughter in delight,
Sunsets paint a new sky every night,

He could have made it all less so,
No mountain white-capped earth below,
No flowers cheerful in the sun,
No wild horses driven to run
No autumn treasures, no trees to measure.
But the clever God is mysterious,
He loves the beauty just like us.

Evening Prayer

Lord above,

Tonight, You have given me this sky,
Spread out like a carpet before me.
I need only to walk out and see it,
To remember the beauty You give.

Tonight, You have given me silence,
A welcome retreat from worldly chaos.
I need only to listen in stillness,
To remember the peace You bring.

Tonight, You have given me courage,
To face a new day tomorrow.
I need only to follow Thy footsteps,
To remember the strength You are.

October Shines

Even the simplest scene from October is beautiful. October simply shines.

Give Me Grey

Raindrops are forecast, 
For hours and hours...
You, would choose 'away,'
To find your mellow sunny days.
 But I say, give me grey. Every time.
Every minute and every day.
I say, bring the grey and,
Please oh please, let it stay.

Thought She'd Forgotten

Fall begins to knock on my door ever so lightly.
She's gotten such a late start this year, 
I thought that she'd forgotten,
To breathe her magic onto the trees.
But here she comes like nothing is amiss,
Ready to kiss away the remnants of summer.
