...on the journey towards restoration of all things

Great God of the Gilded Sky


Found this poem in an old journal today... I think I wrote this somewhere at the North end of Agawa Bay overlooking Lake Superior in 2000. 

Great God of the gilded sky

breathless here we stand

as if we've seen you painting

the birds that fly

over the seas,

and hill and deep valley where

the cold black water flows

and the trees stand still.


Rise in the western blue

gales of sweetness

foaming over granite beaches

wind over the deep green hue.

Earth & wind

Water & wonder

Waves & rustling trees

& thunder.

Great God of the gilded sky

paint my wings

so that breathless

I, too, might fly.
