His poetic pen


He who capped the mountains white

and laced the crashing seas.

He who created twinkling stars—

graced butterflies and bees.


If he can paint a morning canvas

and embellish the evening sky,

Why wouldn’t his poetic pen

this soul edify?


by Patty Perkins


The poetry of scripture shouldn’t surprise me, but it does. It’s his artistic pen swirling—his inspired word full of beautiful:

Psalm 65:8 “…where morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy.”*

There is God. In creation, in the word and in song—penetrating the souls of man.

*The One Year Bible, March 22, NIV, copyright 1986, Tyndale House Publishers, Wheaton, Illinois.
