Eternal Watch

Leslie Gustafson

Castle Rock, United States

Artist's Description

ETERNAL WATCH

It breathes colors like a never ending fire
Pouring forth speech
To the fathomless sky
Its bride, its source and companion

Those who stumble by can only gasp
And feel the surrender
To one greater that knows
So many secrets

A witness to endless stories told beneath boughs and leaves
Tethered in time
To such an anchor
That raises all its arms in defiance of the ordinary

All has been seen – even giants, beings of time and space
Of lovers below its wings
Writing a script
Of life under the giver of life

How we long to know the whole of wisdom
The spectrum of courage
The purples and fierce shades
That stand ever ablaze over shepherds and Kings

Abounding in one colossal testimony to greatness
To everything proud
To determination and light
That provides over each one of us who understands – an eternal watch
