"The world is a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel." -Horace Walpole

God has no color,
but the palette of love.
His canvas is the face,
the many faces of us.
I am fair like
a dappled cloud -
and he, golden, like
a shade of the sun,
she, a dazzling
earthy brown,
God's skin is the skin of us.

Beautiful!!!!!! I loved it!! great work!!! Incredible.

My only critique is you may want to make it a bit longer. I think you could really expand further on this great poem.

"In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed"
~ William Ernest Henley, "Invictus"

loved this poem! i love the analogy of God as a painter, but until today, i've only heard of the "natural" world being his canvass--the idea that our faces are His masterpiece is wonderful! :)
