The Light Of Deity... Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr...fjr

The Light Of Deity...

Rating: 4.8

Where were you when the Maple trees died?
Where were you when their leaves fell and dried?
Where were you when Nature's Mother's just sighed,
With a wink and smile to Autunns beguile.

Yes, I know, You were there, I believe, I'll attest
Even trees need a stretch of a long winters rest.
And, You knew all of this, before You dropped Your kiss-
O'er the clouds and the Sun, and so much more than this,
before the air, mornings dew, the breeze that cools its mist,
before you sent your only Son to carry out His sacrifice
that began a chain of Renaissance from Resurrections light.
You were there, You are here... Your presence always be
Because that's what God does....He's the Light of Diety.

WoW. WoW. and WoW. Not very literary of me to say but so descriptive of how I felt after reading this masterpiece. I could say awesome but that doesn't express my feelings quite as well as WoW. I would applaud but you cannot hear. So..... WoW, sir, Wow!

He created, gave his soul to us and slept in our hearts. Now it's our responsibility to do the rest. A beautiful poem FJR, after a long time I see a very good selection of members poem of the day. Congratulations are needed by undeserving selections but it's customary so I congratulate you.

Even trees need a stretch of a long winters rest and nature mother has preserved many things for us and for all trees. God is powerful light of Deity and he controls natural actions. We feel God by observing nature. An excellent and powerful poem is nicely penned...10
