~~~ Alpha & Omega ~~~

Updated on May 18, 2015

~ Alpha & Omega ~


" Ensconced upon My visible throne,

Thy heavens unveil invisible home,

Oe'r orb below, where resteth feet,

That fall on spring, e'en winter's sleet.

Surveying athwart 'zure sky I made,

'Bove sheltered vert which lends you shade;

I tread aloft swirled ocean's girth,

And sow shrill winds their roaming berth.


I lit the sun and trimmed crag moon,

To govern pitch night and pilot noon;

Thee shaped vast globe with rushing tides,

Volcanic bursts gave birth her size.

I forged mankind from common earth,

Thenst breathed within, his 'ternal worth.

Created trees, the bees and birds,

And fed my prophets godly words;


Decided vault of faithful blue,

Should still remain arched over you;

Begat wild beasts, invented flowers,

Built fortresses of scented towers,

Which catcheth eyne of creeping things,

The lonesome maid; each bird that sings.


Hark, ev'ry wing and every sting,

Yea, ev'ry unnamed living thing;

I spread abroad Thy lithic table,

Instilled with wisdom; made them able.

Lo, set fixed bounds of seven seas,

And gave dominion to whom did please.


I save my herd from deathly sin,

Thenst Grace them with victorious win.

Aye, dandle lambs 'pon ancient knees,

For whom my Christ turned Kingdom keys,

Bequeathing words hid 'fore void night,

Since day I said, ' Let there be light '. "


THE END

      Romeos, God talking to us through your lines, reminds us of all He's done for us. I listen and respond, "I worship You." Thanks for the experience.

      I tried to squeeze in as much as I could but no doubt that there will be countless actions and attributes of Him which this piece alone could never do full justice to.

      Thank you Chris.

      Written by a flawed and imperfect being MsDora, in an attempt to expound some of the mighty works done by a Perfect Being from the perspective of what I've read and seen of Him and hope it's not too presumptuous on my part to attempt such from said perspective.

      Glory to God for sure and you're welcome MsDora.

      I heartily concur with you and trust that you and your family are enjoying good health and absorbing an enjoyable day today.

      With Warm Regards;

      Dear Romeos,

      First off, I am loving your new profile photo here!

      Secondly, your poetry giving all praises to the Most High One is glorious, as only you can write. It is a beautiful thing to use your gift in this way to His glory, the Alpha and the Omega.

      God bless you, dear heart

      Up ++++ tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

      I am so thrilled that I will enjoy the next ten days off, due to the two long weekend holidays here in a row, and so I added four days of leave in between and made the most of it! I have not had leave time off (the fun kind) in over a decade or longer (except for illness), so it is way past time I should say! It is a most gorgeous day here and I hope all the days to follow. However, I am blessed to always have had the weekends off.

      Peace and love to you across the ocean

      The Lord is glorious and mighty. There is no one like Him. You have testified of His works and His glory and might. Great poem!

      Thank you for stopping by, commenting and sharing on this verse to the Most High and yes, all glory to Him for certain.

      After the best part of two years it seemed about time to change the pic.

      And....wow! A decade without a proper holiday? That's a day off for every year.

      Well, I trust your much-deserved break will be as comforting as being cocooned by cherubim wings and feline purrs, as exciting as a husband's love and licks from chocolate pups, conducted by the symphony of grandchildren's chatter and innocent laughter, playing at a feast of crispy chicken, dairy gateaux, southern lemonade and iced tea followed by sunset promenades in vibrant country parks which might beg to condescend and whisper of beautiful memories and find permanent home in the chapel of your generous heart.

      Have a wonderful time Faith.

      Love and Warm Regards across a twilight, ocean blue.

      Romeos, even your responses to comments are poetic and magical! You paint a lovely scene there and makes me realize just how blessed we are in this life. Thank you!

      I am thankful for I have always been blessed to have the weekends off, so that gets me through the regular work week : )

      Hugs to you "across a twilight, ocean blue."

      Everything is fine and dandy here Ann and trust that life is treating you well in the south-west too and that your recent holiday left you all smiling.

      Thanks for the flattering comments but would be happy just to take a back seat to that compilation of moving and timeless lines from the Psalter.

      Grateful for the opportunity to write this one for His glory and for receiving your uplifting blessings.

      Best Regards;

      Such beautiful words of expressions here, recalls your goodness and the bad to disappear. You are a warrior but shine as a star. Stay in The Lord's army don't wander too far. You have a gift bestowed, upon your intellect, of sophisticated poetry, that's all I expect... That was a nice remix of Fontella Bass's hit "Rescue Me" She had a voice that could nearly match Aretha Franklin's. It took me back to when I was the only 6 years old, running to the record shop to by the latest 45 hits including that one. Yes, Chicago has its disco scene and dance houses. I have a few dance tunes I've created too. One is featured on here: "She's Alright." Check it out! Thanks for coming back RQ.

      What a voice! And a trip down memory lane as well; what a special time that must have been and you was right there during one of the most exciting musical explosions of the century - brilliant.

      Thanks for dropping in man, and leaving your generosity here on this dedication to the LORD.

      I'll be sure to check out " She's Alright " which you've created and look forward to a listen real soon.

      All the Best;
