Scenes From a Distance

I linger neath an oak today
searching horizon's patterned hues,
and marvel at God's quiet voice
in this perfect, dreamy view -

of mountains tall that timeless stand,
carved white and stippled in grey,
then spilling forth in pristine glens
where often, creatures play -

and little dappled butterflies
swoop-stall on seas of waving wheat,
their wings beat songs of silent joy
as they take their rolling seat.
And I look on this loveliness
where cotton clouds drift daftly by
and sun rays split in quilted shapes
before my languishing eye -

and I know our Father is near,
orchestrating this wondrous play -
watching o'er the grandeur of life
in this awesome world He made.
