When the World Was New…

Red hues beyond the land

Fire in the sky as twilight is

Painted by God’s hand.

Graying dark clouds musty

Against the sky.  A magic

Scene no one can deny.

Imagine when the world

Was new.  With clouds so

White and sky so blue.

Do you think God is outraged?

At how we have changed his world?

  1. I love this poem because it just reminds me of a Georgia O’Keefe painting. Or rather, what she must have been looking at for inspiration. Taking mental pictures of every flower, ever thing in the desert. And then deifying it in a painting that was literally larger in life. Good luck with future writing and thank you so much for the follow!
