As in Tribute to God's creation...

A Tribute to God's Creation... A simple, yet complex creation... A beautiful purple flower...
A Tribute to God's Creation... A simple, yet complex creation... A beautiful purple flower...

As in tribute to God's creation,

Majestic waves of rock

rise, peak, then fade

into the cool tranquility

of the waters below.

Gentle ripples tickle the shore,

Caressing the jagged rocks

as they climb

higher and higher

reaching for the summit.

Intertwining shades of green,

collect in forests

below the cliffs.

Trees, standing like guards,

thrust upward

with anticipation

for the sky, the sun and life.

Whispers, nearly silent,

ease through wooded lands

filled with all their wonders.

not one,

but many

lakes and streams

carve out their homes here.

Crickets sing their shrilling song,

accompanied by the bees

and song birds of blue and scarlet.

A hawk sours

on invisible pathways,

up and out of view.

At my side

a flower

delicate

and simple

explains it all.
