Summer Gratitude

          Summer Gratitude

Another Nebraska painted sky,
Sun settles below horizon as prep the bale wagon.

Playfully lazy clouds low in eastern sky,
Glows soft red, pink, and orange.

Colors layered and distinct,
Blended by Creator's smooth touch.

Bigness of sky awakens awe,
Hidden in life's daily events.

Beauty gently draws to goodness and hope,
Setting of sun closes a day with both good and evil.

Before God clean the slate,
Renewed for another day.

Vulnerable, open exposure fostering intimacy,
Express gratitude for His faithfulness to me.
