Humbling


humble
is the one
who sees the dawn
with all its
liquid beauty
resplendent colour
and remembers
no human
can paint the sky
just like this
ever

    This is very true Robyn. Wherever we are in the world the rising and setting of the sun are always awesome and always different each day. The Psalmist says 'When I look at the Sun and the Moon and the Stars which you have made and set in their places - What is man that you think of him - mere man that you care for him'. Even modern technological man with all his inventions and ingenuity is humbeld before a God who not only created the Universe but sustains it every single day. the Psalmist also says that 'The man who says there is no God is a perfect example of a fool'. If we all humbled ourselves more often before our God - the world would be a much nicer place. Lovely poem thanks for sharing - Yours through Poetry - JOHN. (Report) Reply

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
