The Hand of Creation

Within realms of time and vistas vast
We are this moment NOW and all the moons past
Create we do to seize time and memory new
A word, an image, a perception, a view
With pen and heart a poetic word upon paper be
With brush strokes 'tis passion's expression of light's decree
Eternal be this need to do and proclaim
To live our purpose in God's glory and name
Upon surfaces our marks in form there to behold
Within the word, the painting, the sculpture, creation's story told
And when we grasp the intent and expressed grace
It is the hand of creation upon our hearts we place.
