My window’s gallery


My windows are a gallery
With works of art tonight
Delicate frosted fronds and ferns
Etched in pristine white

No brush that’s held in artist’s hand
Can match the symmetry
When warmth and cold upon the glass
Paint fragile artistry

It won’t last long, for morning’s sun
Will kiss it with a ray
The intricate art will melt in tears
And slowly fade away

        NO GOD?


Sceptics say “There is no God”

They’re wrong, He’s everywhere

I need but open nature’s door

To see His wonders there


The velvet in a petaled rose

A butterfly’s bright hue

The sun’s warm rays upon my face

And sparkling drops of dew                                                     

A rainbow on a summer day      

A cooling mid-day rain         

Moonlight’s dusky golden glow

On earth’s great counterpane

Snow-capped mountains touching sky

With valley’s down below

An ocean with it’s white capped waves

And streams where willows grow


No God? With all this beauty

How foolish can they be

He’s ever present in our lives

How sad, they cannot see
