Write My Prayers Upon the Sky

Write My Prayers Upon the Sky
Poetry by Beth A. Richardson
From Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life
Photography by Kim's County Line

My heart lives in you, sky.
 
Dome of light, 
 Of darkness,
 
Canvas of clouds and stars,
 
Of swallows and eagles.
My spirit soars in your vastness,
Exulting in your beauty,
 
The predawn glow in the east
 
Or symphony of colors in the west.
The Creator slings clouds onto your canvas,
 
Paints dreams with textures and colors,
Earth dust and meteor granules.
Each new day, a new masterpiece,
A landscape, unique and priceless.
 Write my prayers upon the sky.
Let my joys, my fears,
My visions, my gratitude
Paint their way into God’s heart.
