Dolomites Alps, Italy
I glory in your handiwork, O God:
towering mountains and deep valleys,
dense forests and expansive deserts,
fathomless depths of blue below and immeasurable
heights of blue above.
When I peer into the universe of the telescope
and the universe of the microscope I stand in Awe at:
the complexity and the simplicity,
the order and the chaos,
and the infinite variety of colors everywhere.
When I watch the little creatures that creep upon
I marvel at:
O Lord God, Creator of the hummingbird
and the milky Way,
I am lost in wonder at your originality.
