The Path Slopes

The path slopes below, a verdant bottom

Across a dotted mesa, above clouds

Striding the colors, shape silence

In rapture I thank my creator

The morning radiance, glowing horizon

God’s new day — I savor

Walking a gentle path, gaze skyward

The warmth of God’s sun upon my face.

I look across the valley

The sculpture’s hand – God’s

The picture stays with me

God’s love I walk in
