Haiku #27


Pikes Peak, by Hogs555, on Wikimedia Commons
mountain cathedral
your snow-tipped spires
bid come and worship

mountain cathedral
your steadfast beauty bids me
come, be still, worship

mighty mountain
I cannot imagine a God
big enough to create you

mighty mountain
God, big enough to create you
is beyond my imaginings

Back story: Every Sunday, I drive an hour or so south to see my mom, who lives in Colorado Springs, where I grew up. For about two thirds of the trip, I can see Pikes Peak. Today it was especially beautiful.

It is pictures like this that make me wonder how people can doubt that there is a a God. Beautiful and I love the metaphor mountain cathedral.
