God has No Colors

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.

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! :)

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