**'Between'** - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

...In between the Dawn of Morn,
........And the blanketing of Night,
...Is the day, full of visuals -
......Graced with God's, colour filled delights!

......We have the Graceful Rise and fall,
....Of many a Mountain Range,
......And the circling of the Globe,
........With the Oceans, And other Tidal Change!


...The Tall and Regal Evergreens -
.....DogWood to Mighty Oak -
.........Roses abd Daffodils, abloom,
........In refreshing, Spring Rains, they soak!

...We have, the Regal Cardinal -
......The Humble Sparrow and Blue Jay -
........The Monarch Butterfly and Honey Bee -
.........So much beauty, they fill the day!

...Or perhaps, the Azure Blue,
.....Of the heated Summer Sky -
........And let us not forget,
.........Our Butter-Yellow Sun, on high!

...Just a glimpse, of the hours in Between -
....The Dawn of Morn, and Blanket of Night -
......Embracing each, with tender loving care -
.........So pleasing, to our sight!

...And if these hours, were not enough -
.....The Blanket, it does shine -
........With a Billion Diamond Glimmers
............All Are Gods, Most Divine Signs! !

    Thank you for your praise!
    How come no new work for me to comment on? I looked, and there is nothing new..Are you just taking a little break, over doing work, or just caught up in an active social life? . I find that comments, both good and not so good help us improve our writing skills and help to bring us to greater demensions in our ability as writers to write. I know my little ability has come from God, that is probably why i write about Him and the things of nature that He has given to us!
    Hardly anybody thinks about the fact that they woke up or saw a rarebird, like a cardinal, and they are rare here...Just seeing the squirrels play, is a constant reminder to me, that Jesus is Alive and well and living in us, through us..., and right now at this moment in my life, very much a part of who i am.
    Thank you as always for taking the time to comment, and do not be afraid to give constructive critisism!
    Blessings,
    Theo
