The Hands That Made Us Are Divine

The firmament declares as one; Its stars, all sisters of our sun In broad array speak as they shine - The hands that made us are divine. The planets in procession fly Around our sun, across our sky. Celestial anthems flow like wine - The hands that made us are divine. In twilight's shade, day yields to dark, Nocturnal orb in radiant arc; Though hushed, sings to this heart of mine - The hands that made us are divine. As comets in their orbits sail With blazing head and glistening tail Proclaiming as a heav'nly sign - The hands that made us are divine. Although their voices can't be heard By human ears, my soul is stirred. My praise, O Lord is solely Thine - The hands that made us are divine. "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech" - Psalm 19:1

Thanks for what you said about my kyrielle. I don't know which poems of yours I never read yet but it's fun seeing the replies you left me because I have my notifications for replies turned off. I will maybe just explore poems of yours to see your replies. Unless I can find a poem of yours I have not read yet!!

wow, you did great with that kyrielle form, John. And I like how you drew inspiration from that bible quote. I especially enjoyed the comets imagery.

Thank you, my friend. This was partly inspired by your poem, "I Praise you, God, for Gifts Galore", which I believe is the first Kyrielle I have read. I loved it, so I thought I'd try my hand at it. Blessings ~ John
