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 breathtaking 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

    1. Thank you Susie. Yes the rain is on its way and we need it. Glad you're getting some pretty days... I'm still dragging but hopefully soon. Blessings to you

  3. Susie,

  4. My favorite season too, my friend...You've used such beautiful, gentle words to describe the picture! Thank you for sharing.
    Blessings & Love to you, and praying you are well~Lisa

    1. Thank you Lisa. you are always in my prayers. Blessings and Love to you as well.

  5. And isn't it wonderful that there are four seasons, all with different colors! Yes, "God has made everything beautiful..."
    I'm hoping, since you're writing again, that it means you're feeling somewhat better?

  6. Susie, this is one of my favorite poems so far. It is really a special one. Yes, God's world looks like a masterpiece painting, and I am taking in all these glorious Autumn colors. Teardrops falling from an old mother's face......I love that, and we sure do have sorrows as a mother as well as joy, don't we? And I loved the part about the red rose. It's nice to know someone who loves red roses as much as I do, Susie. You always speak from the heart when you write your poems.

    Have a wonderful week.

    love, ~Sheri
