Light, what strange thing this be,
To guide us on our path,
To welcome us from the night,
To lay to rest fears of the dark.
Strange this, light and itís power.
Light, too much and it burns,
Burns away the sight from our eyes.
And all the magic in the sky
We see each morn and eve,
The vast canvas of God as,
The reds and purples dance
Betwixt the clouds and sun.
And silver light from moon
Reflected in our windows,
Casts shadows and imagination
To lead us to the threshold
Of dreams.

"See the man with the lonely eyes, oh, take his hand, you'll be surprised." Supertramp.

Writing vs Voice
Well written, but I bet it's even better when you read it. I'd like to hear that. One can almost feel the undercurrent rhythm, like the swells of a quiet sea that don't detract from the painted sunset, but without which the experience would never be the same.

It's strange and nice that you say that because I write all my poetry to be spoken and believe an oration can give the words more life than mere reading... Thank you for your comment and I appreciate your perception.

Canvas of God
Chris, I love this. I often look at a beautiful sky, sunset, and pretend I can see God with a paintbrush painting every last detail to perfection. This is beautiful!
