Perpetual Astonishment

Paint, brushes, and watercolors
Shades of green, yellow, red and blue
Scents, sights and wonderful hues
The Creator decorates and spring is underscored.

There is such an anticipation of spring
After dark cold winter ends
New life awakens and begins to sing
Sun warms and creation transcends.

The intensity is bright and clear
No creation does He withhold
All jump in line as they unfold
Their design and beauty to declare.

Flowers in their prime
Birds, insects, grass and trees chime
Through gentle winds and rain outlined
The sound of music is defined.

Spring is perpetual awe
Brushes filled with vibrant colors
Form earth, sea, sky and shore
All of creation draws.

All nature rejoices
To which we all embrace
Spring - Godís showplace
A picture that never ceases.

Now spring has come to me.
My soul was once cold and frozen
Then the warm Son came
Rebirth and I was chosen.

Its perpetual astonishment you see!

I love the imagry of paint, colour and brushes. As one who dabbles in watercolour, I often see the sky, trees and lanscape in that way. I could really relate.

Yes, what an inspiration God's artistry is! I enjoyed your poem!

I really love the phrase "perpetual astonishment." That will stick with me for a while.
