On High

The radiance of summer comes from God on high
He sends to us His warmth letting us feel His love
He cools us off with the wind of His breath
He refreshes us with rain showers

He shows to us his grandeur with each flower that buds
They lift their blooms to the sky pointing to God on high
Their fragrance is His gift to us
Their color radiates His joy in us

The fruits of summer are rich in variety
They point out Godís love of all things
Each sweet taste that they convey to us
Are gifts from God on high

The lazy days of summer refocus us
Letting us reflect on our God on high
He whispers in our ears quietly His love songs
That sways us in harmony with Him

Crystal blue is the summer sky
Reflecting the openness of God
He wishes to share with us all His gifts
That He has in waiting for us on high

Shimmering are the clear blue rivers
That flow through green lush meadows
From on high Christís blood flows over us
Letting us shimmer like diamonds before God

Let us accept all of Godís gifts
He freely gives to us
For in His great love for us
He reaches down from on high and adores us

I could see and feel the gifts of God as you described them so beautifully in this. It made my heart swell with praise and the last line was so profound. How exquisite to know, really know, that He adores us. What greater Love is this. Blessings to you and thank you for sharing.

thank you some lovely thoughts and descriptions in this poem. Just a couple of suggestions. As you decided to divide the poem into four line verses I expected to see some ryhming pattern with free verse like this my view is that it can work just as well with in a more irregular spacing and collecting togetheer the ideas/themes to make the verses. Others may dissagree and like neatness but maybe give it a try and see how you find it!
