Yesterday, I thought I saw
you when God’s colors were

The incessant
of birds perched in the tangled mane of
tree limbs had finally torn the sky’s stitches.
The long, straggly fingers of
the shadow-shrouded trees had
God’s paint-pots.

Cascades of color gushed through the
cracks in the membrane
of earth’s periphery. They billowed
magnificently, gloriously, like scarves in the wind.

I love this. There's so much beautiful detail and imagery in just three stanzas that aren't even all that long. You're such a wonderfully talented poet.
