Heaven And Earth - Poem by Gerry Legister

God created heaven and earth
We were the fashion renew,
God was the creator from birth,
And the sky was also new.

We only knew heaven was higher
Stretched far into unending distance,
Beginning our life and character,
The discovery brought new science.

Created in the celestial realm,
The strong and the weak with strength,
The embryo of transplant intent began,
To oblige the soul in unknown might.

Beautiful colors in nature entrenched,
Hopes springs Gods eternal grace,
Begin the mortal race on a bizarre road,
With new creation of continuous race.

Cold calculated chaos began misgiving,
In the beginning opulence was lost,
Temptation found refuge sauntering,
To the existence of penitent cost.

Mankind suffer rejection and abuse,
Pride took a ride in ungainly pursuit,
To reconstruct the skills we once refuse,
But could not make earth a safer retreat.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

God created heaven and earth for beings to dwell in and to enjoy its Festivity.
