I was looking at the skies earlier today
The day was bright, just slightly sunny
As I peered from my bedroom window
Such breathtaking beauty met my eyes
On to the front porch for a better view
Shades of blue and white and grey
Shifting, varying the patterns they wove
Made me wish I had the skill to paint
But in its absence, enter the camera!
The wonder of science that’s like the eye
Snap, snap, I can not only behold
But record for you and whoever cares
The amazing handiwork of Father God

Doesn’t this just remind you of Psalm 19:1?
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” (KJV)

    Nature is beautiful. Most times, we realize that no matter how well we make a painting, it cannot take our eyes off the real thing. God is definitely an artist, He made nature.

  • I love your poem, Edith, because I understand the joy of gazing at Jehovah God’s beautiful sky! He’s a master painter and I marvel at what He does with sunsets, rainbows, and white, puffy clouds! I am in AWE of the beauty of God’s sky, and the fact that He alone created it, and His He changed it every day and night; which is truly incredible! How can one not believe in God after seeing The Lord’s masterpiece? I am crazy in love with the sky, and I write about it and photograph it all the time. My daughter and I love the sky so much! We always tell each other that come look at God’s beautiful sky! Here is one of my most favorite times we experienced an unbelievably beautiful sky together. I hope you enjoy our story!
    Also, I’m sharing your lovely poem on The Silver Lining tomorrow, which is now today! ? Love and blessings to you and yours, in Jesus’ name!

    Our God is beautiful so, everything he does is also beautiful. A songwriter Nathaniel Basssey also made mention of this in on of his songs-Everything. When I was much younger I and my siblings would always go out at night sit down counting the stars and watching clouds go by. It’s just too beautiful

  • Eze martins Tochukwu

    Thank you ma for this wonderful poem. I must confess I have not taken interest to look at the sky and appreciate its beauty but this poem have awaken this desire and I look and saw that the sky is very beautiful just like every other things that God created.

  • When I was alone and had nothing doing, I just looked up and saw the beautiful forms of the sky and took pictures of it. I did it because I had nothing doing. I think we ought to appreciate the things of God more in our lives .The trees, sky, earth even our body. I sometimes wonder, if we are created in the image and likeness of God, then we are identical in form as Him. Glory!!!
