"The Night Sky"

The jeweler

Holds out the black velvet cloth,
And thousands of diamonds
of every size,
Glitter and gleam and hold my eyes.

Then I see
The jeweler's careful clockwork,

As the celestial bodies circle

Their appointed paths
With unfailing precision and unending beauty.

There are some 
Who say there is no God,

But I know there is
a Heavenly Jeweler
For I have seen His gems.

by Jana Powell, "The Night Sky", New Era, June 1984, 51
