Rainbow Symphony

I looked through my prism
Still I could not see
Your colors

I wished for the beauty of a sunrise
Wild flowers blooming
Bright blue sky and emerald waters
The colors of fall leaves
I wanted a rainbow symphony
To hear and see your majesty
To walk along your red carpeted splendor

The magnificence of you 
Hidden behind a wall of dark grey
A protective layer of granite
Cold to the touch
Unyielding 

I chipped
Searching for cracks
Tapped out cryptic messages
Hoping you would understand
You guided me to the entry way
past the sentinels
Down the corridors
To your banquet hall
Where now I celebrate
Marvel at the brilliance of you
I see
I hear
I feel
Each note

My prism 
Inadequate to the task
I see your colors
Oh so many colors
Rainbows cannot articulate 
Butterfly's look anemic 
Diamonds lack clarity
I see
I try to understand
The magnificence of you
The perfection
The power
The glory
Yet I cannot
You are 
I am not
Yet because of you
I see
A glimpse of eternity
