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!

Musing!
Craving to pen
scribble or compose, yet
troubled, melancholy am I
but why?
Sun steep in the sky — rays falling
God high up — grace dipping;
there I did it!
The end.
