I am an eclectic poet. I will write about anyting at all, from the funny and gross, to humor to Dr Seuss to true stories to fiction to drama to illness to themes on worship. Everyone at some point in time will like one of these, but very few will like all. Saying this, I think every Christian lyricist or poet/rhymist at some point has attempted to describe the wonders of God’s creation, and I am no exception! While an impossible topic, it is a worthy effort and allows the poet to strive to describe the undescribable. In the end, no matter the product, the effort is worth the failure. My goal was to create an impression of His massive work with very few words, and each word chosen for the greatest impact.
While this was a really hard piece, I enjoyed the mental challenge. I love the idea of Divine Creation; it gives me a sense that I am part of a greater whole, a beloved creature. To me, the complexity of our universe, crafted by physics and mathematics, imprinted with a distinctive DNA is awe inspiring. In any case, the birth of our universe is a synergistic combination of theory and faith (be it creation or evolution, as there is no true definitive answer). Whether or not you believe in Intelligent Design, I hope you enjoy the imagery.
Omniscient plan, meticulous, intertwined
Eons of painstaking, divine design
Elements created, carefully combined
Coalescing, swirling, movement aligned
Ever expanding vastness of space
A yin and yang of heat and cold
Design of physical laws in place
Mathmatics the universal mold
Stars unlimited, universal completion
Planets with gravitational bonding
Seven days or ages, omnipotent depletion
Manifested, with One Word responding
Trinity, exhausted, now requiring repletion
Perfectionist, announcing His Great Work
Virgin Earth, exquisite, untouched, fresh
Mankind created, worship understood
Wonders on wonders now in living flesh
All creation in wondrous display
Visible, God’s glory declared
Man’s free will to fully obey
God’s only wish, a communion shared.
