For Kez and Anthony

Swimming in the dark blue sky

Watching paddleboats trip on by

Teaching stones Beethoven’s Fifth

Stating gravity is but myth

What is man that You are mindful of him?

 

Philosophy is the unwanted guest

Logic – the shark infested nest

Questions are banally unwelcome

Answers - a dark and dreary tomb.

What is man that You are mindful of him?

 

The pulse dries up in protest

Moans of emotion escape the breast

This earthly life is the shadow

But pain’s our lot in life’s meadow.

What is man that You are mindful of him?

 

The scales tip deeper over

Then hope appears to God-lover

Form is given to the prime desire

As peace returns in small measure.

Who is God that we know Him?

 

Calm in the stormy sky

Paddleboats still churning steadily by

Yet peace abiding in heart at rest

Knowing that a grace amazing fills our nest

What is man that You are mindful of him?

 

This grace amazing is His bequest

Speaks of His glory – awesome in any way you care to look at it.

God is the Father of Love

Man is the watched from above.

There is peace in the heart that trusts.

Wonderful and meaning full

Wonderful and meaning full lines..!! I loved these lines "The pulse dries up in protest, Moans of emotion escape the breast, This earthly life is the shadow, But pain’s our lot in life’s meadow.
What is man that You are mindful of him?"
