WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: MASTERPIECE
I visited the Grand Canyon, one of the seven wonders of the world, last August. I stood at the cliff overlooking a masterpiece of God’s work. I viewed in awe and in wonder at the awesome work of His hand. Their were moments where I could only praise Him for what He had done. In creating the Earth he has designed for us a beautiful place in which to live. Who could ask for a more wonderful home.

THE GRAND CANYON
by: Lisa A. Williams (1961- )
I look to the depths, Far, far below,
To crevices, caverns, formed long ago,
To twisting trails, Ledges steep
Winding rivers with pools so deep.
Under the gaze Of Wotan’s Throne,
A river of scarlet steals mammoth stone.
High above, In heaven’s eye,
the Temple of Vishnu, Guards changing sky.
Mountains greet, With great surprise,
Cascades of color With each sunrise.
Golden walls, with lavender hues,
Shades of pink and smoky blues.
Rainbows of stone,
Dance in fading light,
With the approach of night.
Distant howls echo, In black skies,
Piercing the silence, With lonely cries.
Into the depths Of the purple abyss,
Surrounded by towering Crimson cliffs.
Showers of turquoise, Bathe ancient walls,
Sculpting new images As water falls.
Bright Angel Point, In creations glory,
From the beginning,
Knew the story,
Of a piece of untamed land,
How it succumbed To nature’s hand.
Woven by time, Into glorious form,
Witness to age And frequent storm.
Beneath an endless sky of change,
The molten earth Expanded range,
Took over more Of untouched ground,
Transforming stone Into craggy mound.
Watchtowers rose From the silent earth,
Each new creation, Celebrating its birth.
Below an air of altered shade,
A new foundation Of world was made.
A brush in hand, The painter can see,
The miracle of nature And all it can be.
Trying to capture the beauty Of age,
Seems impossible with human gauge.
So much to take in, The eyes try to behold,
An ancient image Of creation so bold.
Formed by ice and melting snow, An artist’s canvas,
Sketched long ago.
