Reaching for God

It’s the third week of the month! Time for an Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

Click for details

First the Photo Prompt seen below:

I see a hand reach
Cut off, but living
Stretch out to cosmos
Dull, muddled in sin!

The hand enfolds with
Hope, a sign Divine
Where art thou One God?
Rainbow of promise!

Could this be our end?
Or the beginning
I see a hand grasp
Cut off, but reaching!

My post is a simple verse with the syllabic count of 5 per line, speak from my heart!

  1. To me, that hand, cut off as it may appear, prismed in all the colors that we are, is part of the cosmos. So in essence, it is NOT cut off. It is part of God’s plan and lovely creation. Your poem brought me to this understanding and so I thank you dearly for it, Myrna. Thanks for sharing it here. I bless you and wish you miracles.

    1. Genesis 9; VERSE 13 “I will set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be the sign of a covenant between me, and between the earth. [14] And when I shall cover the sky with clouds, my bow shall appear in the clouds: [15] And I will remember my covenant with you, and with every living soul that beareth flesh: and there shall no more be waters of a flood to destroy all flesh.

      [16] And the bow shall be in the clouds, and I shall see it, and shall remember the everlasting covenant, that was made between God and every living soul of all flesh which is upon the earth.”
