Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. —Ecclesiastes 3:11
How does the slender stem
hold the long and silky petals
and the pollen filled center
pillow of the zinnia and daisy?
How does each snowflake
break into a unique symmetry
and then wait lined upon on a leaf
as a miniature art exhibition?
How does the wave crest
and roll into itself before falling
over sand and shell reforming
the waiting shoreline?
All this sumptuousness,
this dynamic slate of lush green,
cool blue, ice-white, and wondrous
touches of fuchsia and orange
are the tools of the Creator,
the Artist of all that ever was
or could be beautiful.
