The sky is “Prime”–it delivers us light & drops off water at our doorstep

If the sky only had one rainbow and people had to travel to see it, it would be one of the world’s most popular tourist attraction. The sky is prime! It delivers us light and drops off water at our doorstep.

Observing the sky
With an open heart
Is a substance-free way
To get high.

Astronomers and meteorologists
Study and analyze the sky.
I just gaze up and wonder why.

Even when the sky is dark
And you see no hope,
The sun, moon, and stars
Keep shining.

When you feel
Like you’re falling,
The sky is calling.
Look up
And be encouraged.

The sky has a way
To take words away
And replace
What you say
With the silence
Of awe.

To eye
The sky
And ponder
The wonder
Of the wild,
Blue yonder,
Lets peace
Settle in.

The sky can make you smile,
Watching a cloud’s profile,
And make you think awhile.

The more I look up
To the blue
The less the blues
Bother me.

Light rays, colors, sun, and moon,
Stars, clouds, flying birds, and falling leaves
Gloriously stream across the sky.

The night sky
Abounds with giant suns
So distant that they sparkle
Like tiny specks of glitter.

When you close your heart's shades
You miss the sky's many shades
Of of red, gray, gold, and black,
And many hues of blue.

Your dreams are like clouds.
When they settle to the ground
They become fog,
But when they soar in the sky,
They they lift you high.

Earth’s gravity
Keeps the atmosphere here.
Be grateful.
If it should disappear,
We all would too.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
