Great One!

by Lupe’ King

How great You are, in the many stars and galaxies

I see the universe created

at Your spoken Word…

 

In the sunset, surrounded by mango colored skies

I see Your beautiful face…

 

Upon the Mesas of my heart and spirit

I feel the drum beat of your heart

 

In the whistling winds of the sand-storms

I hear the wisdom of Your ways

 

In the hot and blazing sun-I am healed

from my brokenness through the colorful rays of

Your splendor

 

In the gentle rains-I feel Your tears united with mine

and within Your compassion, I am accepted by

Your unconditional love

 

Within the aroma of fresh fallen rain and

the softened ground, I am once again united

with the ground that You took me from

and remember the words,

“Let us make man in our image”

 

Within the realm of feathered friends,

I hear their multi-varied songs, and I am reminded

of the joyful audience that awaits me to join them

in their cheerful songs to Creator

 

Amidst four legged creatures, I learn that there are times

for movement and times for rest, all found within

inward time clocks, unseen by Creation-man, yet

made known to us via the depth of Creator’s wisdom

 

Watery creatures teach me to flow and at times

to ride the waves, yes, the flow and the waves of the intrinsic

vibrations of our Ancient One’s sound…

 

We bow before You, Gitchie Manitou,

How awesome are You and how wonderful (full)

Your ways!
