No greater beauty

If there be any beauty in the sun’s setting
how much more so in its rising?
God’s artistry ablaze in color–
a glimpse of heaven’s grandeur.
Yet while the dome of the sky was created first,
suspending the sun for day and moon for night,
a special beauty, perhaps, remained
for those gifted with dominion.
First from earth,
  then from bone,
    a creature made from love,
      for love
of other.

Holding within it the essence of the Creator Himself,
there can be no greater beauty than love.
