Paint Me A Picture


Paint me a picture
Of mountain cool breezes swaying towering golden yellow aspen trees
Whose quaking leaves silence the sound of the whispering pines
While wild flowers adorn the highland meadow grass rejoice in the evening rain

Paint me a picture
Of morning sun gently caressing the morning gloriesí blue petals
Welcoming the eastern sky alive with pastel shades unfurling
With ribbons of pinks, lavenders, and blues fading into the midday haze

Paint me a picture
Of pink and white apple blossoms adorning uplifted arms in springsí fragrant air
As butterflies dance in red clover fields and quiet brooks quench
Thirsty fawns pausing to hear the rustling leaves in the meadow behind

Paint me a picture
Of morning dew softly kissing the delicate roses of cool colors warmed
By the soft glow of the sun their musky perfume wafting to frantic bees
Who suckle sweet nectar to the haunting call of loons in the sleeping marsh

Paint me a picture
Of summers cerulean skies with powder white clouds drifting by oceans of misty
Blue flax lapping the edges of yellow mustard fields swaying in rhythm
To the prairie winds and songs of the bobolink, meadowlark, oriole and wren

Paint me a picture
Of autumn trees and multi-color leaves of oranges, warm browns, bronzes, yellows
And reds ablaze in the treetops pouring their palette of color where
Crisp air heralds their rustling fall as scurrying squirrels warn of colder days

Paint me a picture
Of moonlit snow on cold clear nights where barren trees become a wonderland of
Hoarfrost crystals shimmering as new clothes in the icy air while they
Stand in winterís splendor waiting for the sundogs to play in the frozen sky

Paint me a picture
Of the Master Artistís perfect love, where He shed His blood, crucified, the
Lingering shadow of a now empty cross when the earth grew dark and the cry,
It is finished, echoes for eternity in the vacant tomb, risen He lives forever more

Psalm 74:16 The day is yours, the night also is yours: you have prepared the light and the sun. 17 You have set all the borders of the earth: you have made summer and winter. (KJB)

Psalm 148:5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. (KJB)

Job 37:5-6 God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength. (KJB)

Job 38:24-30 By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth? Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder; To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man; To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth? Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew? Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. (KJB)

Rom 5:8-9 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (KJB)

Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.(KJB)

This is a stunning piece. I feel like I can smell and see and enjoy God's creation most beautifully. The rythmn is excellent - the descriptions flow and fill my mind with God's glorious gift - both in our world and through Jesus Christ. The last verse is riveting, an absolutely perfect ending - or should I say beginning :) All the Scriptures are wonderful, I love lots of texts - it reminds me how Awesome God is and gives me much joy as I mediate on Him! Thank you for sharing this piece of exquiste "art" :) It is a real treasure!
