If you read much of my work, you’ll know I’m visual. A couple of years ago I had to stop my car by the interstate to write about a picture I’d just seen. The poem follows.
It saddens me that we humans are so gifted with foresight and insight, so capable of visualizing and then realizing the unseen, but that we are still lured by the sight of easy gain, pleasure and leisure such that we create visual scars in the pursuit of beauty. How can we be so short-sighted?
On this Earth Day, I want to wish that we would learn to live in peace with God’s beauty, rather than imposing our flawed ideas on His perfection.
And here’s my poem.
