Listen

Double Rainbow April 21, 2022

Do you hear
Me pray to you
With a heart
That loves you true

I am trying to
Open my eyes
To live my life
Not let it pass me by

I want to hear
The birds in the trees
Calling to me
To listen quietly

To the stories
That they tell
The geese with
Their nightly farewell

The shades of
The leaves in the trees
So beautiful
Changing Seasonally

The colors of this world
That you paint
Fading into each other
Off in the distance

The sparkle of
The nightly stars
Guiding our way to say
You are not far

The sun
Burning bright
Lights our day
With keen insight

Showing us beauty
Within every beam
Shining down upon us to highlight
Sights otherwise unseen

The waves crashing
Onto the beach
Sometimes so swiftly that
It knocks us off our feet

All the dollars
On the sand
The riches of each tide
Are scattered all around

The raindrops that fall
Tears from above
As You weeps quietly
With Your undying love

The rainbows so delightful Dancing colors in the sky
Take away the breath
Of those within it’s sight

The mountains towering
Capped in white
A chilling embrace of frozen might

A breeze that carries
The leaves away
Softly blowing in
The beauty of today

Dear God
Thank You so
For showing me Your love
With the wonders You bestow.
Katherine Spitzer
