TITLE: The Color's of God
By Alicia Renkema


God is a God
of color and beauty.
Fly - fishing green,
peaceful, serene.

Purple-like majesty
tucked under

Deer and gazelle
drinking from fountains.

Soft, gentle, rainbows
follow God's

 God's special
as the earth
washes, then dries.

We see
the symmetry
and beauty
of His
precious rocks
and His gems.

They sparkle
with color
as they
tell the story
of Him.

He's so deep,
so precious,
with love
joy and peace.

Yet, we
only get glimpses
and splashes
of these.

When we see
some of God's
colors --
His wildlife
roaming the earth,
we get a sense
of His character;
a sense of His worth.

I love
 when the sun
lies down its
golden head --
 and puts its
weary self to bed.

The face of the sky
is gold
at the start.
 It slowly turns pink,
then, warms up its heart.

My eyes
start to blink
as I'm mesmerized
by this beautiful

Before I know it,
the sky
is a blaze
of purple--red
as the day
quickly becomes

My favorite place
to be in all of
God's world
is the beach
with all
of her colors

The peace and the quiet
amidst the roar
of the waves
is enhanced by the
splashes of color
on the water itself.

For there lying
on top of the sand
next to the rocks
 and right by the kelp
are God's awesome

Some colors
are muted,
and can barely
be seen.

God's magenta's
purples, grays,
and His greens.

The splashes
 of these colors
speak of His
great white light.

They tell of a power
that is far above me,
one that I long to touch
and to see.

I can hardly
wait to be raptured
in the twinkling
of an eye;
a major
news splash
as I quickly
pass by.

I will be 
eternally home
where seven flashes
of color
stand solid
and upright.

They will
dance in praise
around the Father's throne
Royal and Bright.  

  (God's Word Translation)  Revelation 4:2-6 "Instantly, I came under the Spirit's power, I saw a throne in heaven and someone was sitting on it. The one sitting there looked liked gray quartz and red quartz. There was a rainbow around the throne which looked like an emerald. Around that throne were 24 other thrones, and on these thrones sat 24 leaders wearing white clothes. They had gold   crowns on their  heads. Lightning noise, and thunder came from the throne. Seven flaming torches were burning in front of the throne. These are the seven spirits of God."

This is a beautiful, faith filled and inspirational poem. A true delight to read. I love the way you use the colours to highlight God's creation. I like the way you ended it too with the passage from Revelation. It tied in and rounded the piece off well. Great job.

I could imagine heaven when I read your lovely descriptions of the colors God reveals to us everyday. Thanks for reminding me of these beautiful things I sometimes take for granted. This is just mesmerizing. Your poetry paints such beautiful images.

Oh how I wish I could do what you did in this poem! I love that you included the passage in Revelation because that's what I thought of when I read it. Oh what a sight it will be to behold. You've captured it magnificently!

Beautiful artistic words splashed across the canvas of God's creation. Lovely and rhythmic. A joy to read and mediate upon!

So many beautiful descriptions in here. Splashes of God's color are all around us.

When you switched voices from "we" to "I" it threw me off a little. But no big deal.

Good job, keep writing!

I am a person who loves color. It feeds my soul! :) So I very much enjoyed your color-full poem! One of my favorite parts was:

"Soft, gentle, rainbows
follow God's

God's special
as the earth
washes, then dries."

Very descriptive!
