Observe the Sky

Observe the Sky


At times we all regard the sky

Admire the great expanse

The miracles displayed on high

Parading at a glance


Sapphire orange indigo grey

Scarlet incredible blue

Glistening nights glowing by day

Amazing awesome view


Radiant sun, stars sparkle and blink

Silvery clouds sail by

Splendour supreme causing to think

Just how, where, when and why


Is not God’s handwork on display?

Presenting priceless jewels?

How else could splendour flaunt this way?

Frustrating man made rules


Without The Master’s mighty hand

Regardless what we’ve heard

Heaven and earth could never stand

Without Creation’s Word


It’s plain enough for all to see

Each night each blessed day

Whether or not we now agree

Life’s facts are on display


With rhythm with a song divine

Melodiously true

The moon will glow the sun will shine

Sinner and saint to view


Thus so its been day in year out

Like clockwork to regard

Praising The Maker ever devout

Inside His own backyard……

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
