The curtain has been raised

And this is what is seen

What to others looks like a giant mess

Yet to my Maker it is serene

He sees the beauty in the silks

He sees color, symmetry, lines

He sees life is drifting right in the midst

He sees wonder in the chaos that is mine

The curtain has been raised both for me and for you

So what has been stolen and plundered?

All of this is just a beginning for Him

A beginning of art, glow, and wonder

K, Duane Carter  3-6-11

Written for onestoppoetry challenge.  Image by Jacob Lucas.  In honor of my son, Eli, whose birthday is today, adopted from a Chinese orphanage years ago because someone saw the wonder in the chaos.
