God s Masterpiece

by tempeste

Sunsets come in an array of stunning hues
from fall's red-orange and burgundy
to melting gold and butterscotch candy.

Finished my last chore
often I perch on the top footstep of my church
to watch yet again another day end.

God's masterpiece never fails to spellbind.
Town's angular silhouette stands clear-cut
against a canvas of eye-catching tones.

All this beauty is our Lord's gift to mankind
yet many find it not worthy of their time
while others don't even believe in its divine design.

As I contemplate God's work of art
anxiety and stress depart;
and a swelling ardour fills my heart.

I want my ashes to be released
here on my mount at sundown;
may this site full of grace
be my resting place.
