Painted Canvas Above

Updated on September 16, 2013
Source

I looked for you in heaven ..through the galaxy of stars

Saturn and Neptune... Venus and Mars

I felt my feet...on the rocks below,

and felt your spirit...which had

a silky pinkish glow

The city lights shone, but could not ...match the sight

of the Lord's painted sky, on this bright starry night

Only your light.. Lord, could give me that glow,

that electric feeling...of you... in my soul

      Just as the beauty of God can lead us to think and appreciate, this poem leads us to think and thank,

      " Only your light.. Lord, could give me that glow,

      that electric feeling...of you... in my soul"

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and beautiful. Shared as well.

      I have often felt this way when looking at the heavens. It is such a rush and I can't quite put it all into words, but you have done it with this poem.

      It is as if you read my mind. How I love a starry sky --and especially with my fireflies which are starting to be fewer around every night. Beautifully done!
