Each blade of grass is a brushstroke on His canvas.
His fauna of diverse beauty of many colours embroidered.
Nature in full swing tells of Him.
The glory of the Divine in shades of greens and happy yellows,
new life springs with His Spirit surge
as flowers bloom and saplings emerge
awakened at the Creator’s command.
Stepping forth from springtime’s grandeur,
the blazing sun marches across firmament of cornflower-blue at the Morning Star’s behest.
Trees clad in verdant hues as clocks of dandelions and floral flags sway,
paying homage in the incalescence.
Vibrant crimson and maroon set trees aglow
as the annual cascade of orange and gold
bathe the land in the dappled leaves of time’s passage.
The autumnal reflection of His power as winter’s chill drifts in.
Dazzling frost of glacial white,
fall from iron grey in a deluge of His love
as trees mourn their loss and creatures slumber
through long nights and shorter days.
Creation is wonderfully perfect in complexity.
Designed by an Artist undiscovered,
nature in full swing tells of Him.
Our God transcendent but with us resident.
