Creator's Craft

"In the beginning God made heaven and earth." Genesis 1:1

Father,

Warm
My soul's eyes to see
The art of the Universe,
The weave of it's wonders,
The measure of it's mysteries:
All the Creator's craft, Yes,
Your might and skill.

Only
The chill of "No"
Will cold the soul,
Ice cover the eyes,
Winter truth and
Be blind to You,
Our Creator.

Yes,
The Tempter stands,
Patient as waiting death,
To stir-up and stoke
The ego-born cry: "No"
"All is chance!" "Design is deceit!"
"God is not necessary!"

But, In reply:

Michaelangelo's "David"? Chance? Please!
Mozart's "Symphonies?" Chance? Please!
Shakespear's "Sonnets"? Chance? Please!
Constitution of the U.S.? Chance? Please!

Yet, all these  pale before Your Craft, Father,

So,
Creation? Chance? Please!

All praise and glory
To You Father Creator,

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
