A Glorious Gift

I looked to the sky just after the storm
So I’ll tell you just what I think
I can see the oranges, reds and grays
Mixed in with the colors of pink.

I’ve always been amazed at the hand of God
As He created the storms in the sky
With the electrified air that smells so good
As the clouds move slowly by.

The evening storms hold the most beautiful scenes
As the sun begins to set
It mixes the colors of red and blue
And then it changes to violet.

I can see the silhouette of the distant trees
Against the sky that was heavenly made
And I’ll always remember just how I felt
As the sunlight started to fade.

I can feel the peace and serenity
As the clouds began to lift
That’s when I realized what I just received
I received a glorious gift.

So it doesn’t really matter what I think
When I look and wonder why
‘Cause this gift I received came from God Himself
As He put it in the sky.

    I love the smell of the air just before and after a storm.

    Thanks Richard, I wrote this poem 4 years ago while watching a storm go by. It was at dusk, and the colors in the sky were just breathtaking. The smell of the air just after the thunderstorm had that Ionized clean smell to it. I then noticed that the natural beauty touched me to my soul. A gift from God Himself......Roger

    so here was your last post on Aug. 16. This was a very nice one, my friend. I especially like the last few lines about it being a gift God put in the sky. It's so very true.

    Roger This write is full of emotion, love, charm, feelings, and heart. The imagery you used to tell this story takes the reader in and lets them visualize what you are writing. Nice job Thanks for the congrats and sweet comment on my Loves Burning poem.
