By J Ann Crowder

I long to see a Genesis of soul
To gaze upon mega cosmos beyond
I’d reach for stars upon bright, dawning knolls
Alive, verdantly, spun with golden frond
 
My heart weeps heavy, heaving light of glens
Each morsel, ashen stones re-composing
From death to sky, drawn by God’s magic pen
Delights in Opus—young germinating
 
He sings a garden, a graceful being
An art’s oasis, I truthfully sought
I, adrift upon peaceful knolls, screaming
I, sifting beneath dark matter, fraught
 
I, stumble upon mine own rudiment
Unveiling day springs of grandest composement

A sonnet. Written December 1st, 2016. This is a soul recreating to a better sense of self worth. He or she is God's design. I believe we are part of God's design, art; he composed us and the Earth. We are his Opus.

Those who question creation, look to their intelligent, complicated perfect, regenerated, loving selves for the answer

That is so true Robert. I struggled with self esteem my entire life because I am so shy. I always say, if God made us and took the time to make this earth for us we must be worth it! We are are all blessed in different ways we just have see it through God's eyes, or at least try.

I woke up to this sonnet. Indeed we germinate in the dark night, dream in our subconscious and upon dawn "unveil a day of grandest composement... the dawning star" in us.
His opus in all of nature, the good in darkness that carries us through the daylight. Cicadas we are screaming for life, for eternity,
"...ashen stones recomposing ". Powerful second stanza. Love, fave.
