Shoreline ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #220

Heavens ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #185

I gaze into the metaphor
Heavens above
Ringed by saints
Flanked by angels

Spirit moved
By the artistry
By the grandeur

Not like these saints

By these metaphors
Manifest

In the people
I have known
In the places
I have been
In the light
I have seen
In the grace
I have experienced
In the beauty
I have created
