God's Canvas Of Colors

The calm beauty of a sunset on a beautiful, painted sky
With big, puffy clouds softly floating by

A red rose in bloom kissed by the morning dew
Sparkling in the sun under a sky of blue

A long, rolling meadow of emerald green
With a light, fluttering breeze and quite serene

An ocean so blue as far as the eyes can see
With each stroke he painted far across the sea

The eyes of a child smiles with a tender caress
His gift to this world filled with joy and happiness

Teardrops falling from an old mother's face
He captured them all with sorrow and grace

A multi-colored rainbow after a shower of rain
A wonder of beauty only God can explain

The twinkling of stars on a moon-light night
A measure of his power on a canvas so bright

A tiny, yellow butterfly fresh from its birth
A token of his love and a heart full of worth

A snow-covered mountain standing so high
With breath-taking beauty it creates a great sigh

The song of a turtle dove at morning's dawn
Brings peace and love for everything that's wrong

I marvel at the tapestry so beautiful and grand
Painted by the master with a gentle, loving hand

His canvas of colors are a sight to behold
He painted a masterpiece more precious than gold
