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!

God Willed it to BE

 Time for an Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). 

First the interesting image

Ekphrastic writing below

How vast this world is, —
A tiny sprout shoots up!
Why am I here? It calls out!
Meager and alone; yet
God willed it to BE!
