A poem, God's Creation

Updated on September 24, 2014
always exploring profile image

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

Someday we shall be with him in his kingdom on high

Sitting out on my patio just as the sun goes down

I look to the Heavens and see beauty abound

The clouds fluffy white and still floating around

The sky still blue with just a hint of pink hue breaking through

Soon the sun will go sound asleep

As the moon rises from just underneath

The sky comes alive with sparkling stars

Each twinkling hello from the Heavens so far

As I gaze at all the glittery wonder

My mind is dazzled at the breathtaking splendor

When the sun goes asleep here in America where I live

It rises for our neighbors, it's heat and light to freely give

And when our night is through and the moon descends

The sun will surely rise for us once again

God created the Heavens for the world to share

Just like he created us with his tender loving care

So let's all blend together with kindness and goodwill

Forever waiting for God's promise to fulfill

Someday we shall be with him in his kingdom on high

Someday we shall live eternally beyond his spectacular created sky.

      What a wonderful gift you have. Your expressions are so vivid, I feel almost like I'm sitting on that patio too.

      Voted up and beautiful.

      BTW, I know you know already that some folks ain't gonna make it....I'll see you there. :)

      Up, awesome and beautiful. Sometimes we just look at the world around us and say "wow". This was great. You've really been knocking them out of the park lately.

      Thanks for the kind words directed to my mom. I'm sure she appreciated hearing such positive things. Peace and blessings.

About the comment i made to your Mother, i had been reading P. comments to you and getting madder each time she came back, when your Mother said what she did, i just had to speak. When you like a poem i've done, i'm thrilled. You know i think you're the best. Thank's again.

      Great poem, always! I love looking up at the sky and the stars. Even watching the sunsets when we have them. The sky is like so many of our moods, sometimes gloomy, stormy or bright! Yes, the heavens above...the sky, is a great gift from our creator. A beauty no man could ever re-create...unless he copied it in a painting. : )

      Viet, I don't think about where Heaven is to be. The bible is not too clear on that...Some say here, while others say in Heaven.. Christ did say that he would prepare a place for us. Different religions have their own belief and that's fine with me. I just want to make sure that i am ready to meet God when i leave this place called earth. Thank you for coming by... I always appreciate your comments.
