Topic: Threefold Cord (04/12/12)

TITLE: Creator's Concert Trio

Heavens, earth, and seas
were uttered into being
by the majestic voice
of Lord God Creator.
They play sweet songs together
in three-part harmony,
directed by Godís unseen hand
in performances unexcelled.
He alone holds the invisible cord
that binds them
into melody unbroken
in a never-ending concert.
For dayís prelude
the sun awakens
choruses of birds,
sheltering in leafy trees,
to sing soaring anthems.
Earthís violins hum
with the teeming life
God has brought forth.
Trees and reeds and goldenrod
swing and sway
to the bluesy jazz of the winds.
A tympani of raindrops
pounds a syncopated rhythm
upon earth and seas alike,
accompanied by booming cymbals
of heavenís roaring thunder.
At the bidding of the moon,
tides of the seas rush in
to swish and swoosh
and crash and slash
against the silent shore.
Heavens, earth, and seas,
bound together until the time
of the Lordís return
with a new heaven and earth,
follow the arrangement
of their omnipotent conductor
in a melodious paean of praise.

The invisible cord as a conductor's baton; very creative.

Well done.

Beautiful.I love the image of creation and nature as an orchestra of praise.

I was captivated by the stunning metaphors and imagery that captures the theme and takes it to a higher lever.:-) The flow of this free style was perfect, in my opinion.:-)

Great job!

Oh, this is so very beautiful. How can anyone look around our world and yet not acknowledge it's Maker? His creation is marvelous, and you've captured it perfectly with your words.

This is beautiful, the descriptions are just amazing. I love the lines -
' He alone holds the invisible cord
that binds them
into melody unbroken
in a never-ending concert'.
What a wonderful Creator! Thankyou.

Nicely done! I would like to have seen some paragraph breaks, however. To write poetry in a challenge entry to me is a challenge all of itself. Very enjoyable read! Blessings...

Verna, I could hear the instruments you so vividly portray in this. What a beautiful descriptive picture of God's concert. I'm looking forward to the 2nd movement in the new heaven and new earth. Congrats dear challenge buddy, on your Editor's Choice award!

A concert through the ages! Makes one wonder how God can improve the second time around. Thank you for sharing your God-given gift, Verna.
