In the making

In the making

Above,
the threatening calamity of clouds
gently embraces sunlight,
focussing its luminescent span
a prelude to the refreshment
of spring rain.
Below,
evidence of earlier showers
percolates beneath our feet
in time carved cavern
and crystal caves.
In the dark forges of eons
and watercourse spin
gems are crafted.
While hand in hand we watch cloud swirl,
its twin,
unseen, in subterranean secrecy,
continues a timeless creation.
And my soul, and your soul,
in resonant echo,
parallel the growing
seen and unseen.

"All nature testifies to the glory of God"! I am touched, thinking of the parallel. Thank you so much, Keith.
