J Ann Crowder

Here I am, amidst my rambling—thoughts provoking emotions, strong
 
Within my heart no words utter
 
I cannot explain the depths in my fear and a longing to trust—alone in a world hard as rock
 
Only nature consoles, betimes
 
I look on stars and butterflies
 
I kiss rain
 
I swim in streams—clear
 
I muse—smiling
 
I find precious stone alongside rushing rivers, dashing them open
 
I discover earth’s hidden agates inside
 
I pray, DEAR GOD!
 
Why must I live amongst fear’s tempest whilst your love stands all around me?
 
I touch it everyday, walking a path of arching trees burning red with autumn’s dawning, lovingly guiding me
 
For love is the vision you gave me with which to see your masterpiece
 
God, you are an artist!
 
You paint wonders for me, filling my world with ever enduring colors
 
Nature is your art—singing and breathing
 
It shows me where to find secret jewels beneath an abiding barrier
 
Alas, we are entombing stones of precious agate
 
Each different
 
Each, a unique masterpiece
 
Each, God's art

I wrote this more for me. Just some rambling thoughts. Written June 28, 2016.

I was told to write a poem just for me. I wrote this for me as a reminder, I more often than not, need. We are all a precious masterpiece in God's hands. He made us as he made all the beauty of this earth.
