The Blue Majesty Above
As a child I would lie in the grass and look up in the sky;
And watched the clouds changing shapes, and quietly passing me by.
Within these clouds I saw elephants, butterflies, even my best friends Big Bird and Winnie Pooh were frolicking around;
I even imagined myself hopping from one cloud to another…Heaven bound.
Till this day the sky mesmerizes me;
The blue of the sky makes me so breathless from its beauty…so painfully beautiful to see.
Just looking at the sky, I can get lost as if there is no end;
During the day it only reminds me of how God provided this beautiful canvas as a home for all the creatures that fly;
It just amazes me of how God’s Wisdom is in everything, that it makes me out of joy …cry.
Like as a child I would jump on my parents’ bed;
Till this day I would daydream bouncing up and down on the clouds of the sky, and getting spiritually fed.
Then I dream of the night skies filled with glittering stars;
Which often reminded me of the lightening bugs my brother and I would catch in jars.
I would take in the night air with a deep breath and sigh;
That I would stare and stare, giving me such a high.
God created such things to remind us of His Wisdom and Presence;
But as humans, we still refuse to recognize God’s Greatness even when the birds greet us each morning as the sky’s tenants.
The sky reminds me of an endless abyss;
That goes on and on forever, we can never of it miss.
Til this day my eyes dance;
When I see the majesty of the blue Kingdom above me, where the birds play and prance.
Twinkling stars and the light of a full moon in the night of the sky…
Have many of times lit a dark path, permitting me and my friend to pass by.
It has made me so happy, and at times very sad;
But nonetheless reminds me God is everywhere, and watches over me, which makes me so glad.
I still bounce around in the sky, on the clouds, in my mind;
And imagine the glittering stars would lead to the destination that I set out to find…
The blue majesty up above is what connects us on Earth, to the Almighty…creating a love of an exraordinary kind.
