Day 2 – Creation

Today, guest post by poet Violet Nesdoly reflects on the story of creation.

Glory Tour

“God’s glory is on tour in the skies …
unspoken truth is spoken everywhere”
Psalm 19:1,4 MSG

The stars are reciting
the galaxies rhyming
secrets of creation
in speed of light timing.

The Sun’s dialect
of dangerous rays
is inflected with angles
defining our days.

The moon serenades
tide, lover and season
chanting its charms
with quarterly reason.

The heavens are dancing
Truth, Beauty and Wisdom.
Tickets are free.
Earth attendees are welcome!

Note: This Advent series is using The Jesse Tree, a liturgical ‘tool’ to help guide and direct spiritual reflection.  Each day leading up to Advent, we  consider one Bible story, or character, beginning from creation, following chronologically (more or less) right up until the birth of Jesus. It’s a way to review the wide sweep of God’s pursuit of humankind across history.

    1. I’m so glad Violet. Your poem had such vivid images – I wanted to try to match them.
