Vision and design, what will it be?

Endless mind, infinite and eternal glee
Preparation of brush, preparation of word
Dark, empty canvas, nothing to see

Brush speaking, painting glorious bright
Splashing of the blue
Lapping on the rising rocks of might

Across the canvass - sprinkles of glitter
Lights so large to rule one half
The bottom brilliant and lush, speckles of color litter

Visions and design what will it be?

Endless colors, endless designs
He can see them all an instant
They sing his praise in endless lines.

Lesser eyes the canvass fills
A glimpse of the endless heart and mind
Through surveying the endless hills

Eyes the strokes consider
The word that brushed the endless
The artist, the creator

Vision and design what will it be?

The cosmos so old
Corrupted and falling apart
The fiery ball gradually getting cold

A brush that touches and feels with sight
A brush of a different kind
A brush that will make it all right

The endless cosmos
The endless one
He and only he, to give the most

Vision and design, the best from He!

What a neat take on space! You've given such a vivid picture with your words. I don't know much about poetry, but I can certainly appreciate beautiful words such as yours.

I loved this: particularly the first 3 stanza's. This is an artist's poem, looking out through His eye's on the beauty of his creation. I felt the ending could have been stronger, but it did not detract from the strong central theme at its heart. God bless.
