Love in the Balance of Heaven and Earth
In the mountain tops, I answered,
Near the white cloud mist’s hold.
Where shoulders of green bear gentle earth mothers.
They call up horizons, they reach to sky’s fold.
Bearing weight all, caring with nests filled with gold.
Sweetened with sunlight shed full upon
Mountain fellows, their faces, turned by lives worn.
Here on their shoulders, high in the sky,
dipped in the blue is a Majesty’s cry.
Love in the balance of heaven and earth
dreams reach up to Thee as the clouds fall with mirth.
Into the soft shoulders of gentle green peaks
like mounds of earth mothers that bear, quake, birth, seek.
Soft are the bellows, on sky mounds that run
lovingly towards home, near to the sun.
Angels paint rainbows in tomorrow’s new day,
from the mountaintop’s glory, in horizons we pray.

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
