Our True Colors

Our true colors become evident
As the sunlight of God’s Love
shines through us;
Allowing us to be all that we can be…
Radiating unique beauty and warmth to all.
Without Love, we are like cold pieces glass
Captured beauty hidden from the world.

Today, at d’Verse Poets Pub, we were shown Chihuly’s work, The Sun, which stands outside the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal, Canada. We were asked to write a Quadrille of exactly 44 words and use the word sun as our prompt.

We recently visited the Strasbourg Cathedral in France where we marveled at the beautiful stained windows that shown in the sunlight. It reminded me of God’s love that shines through us, bringing out our unique beauty. Amazingly on the outside there is little or no color at all.

  1. The cathedrals are beautiful work for me. In Montreal we went to several notably the Notre Dame, and I must say the stained windows are a work of art. Love the meaningful response Dwight. Thanks for being part of our community.

  2. Does it still work for nonbelievers who are doomed to hell?
    How about “Our colors become more true we let love shine through us.” More inclusive, maybe.

      • If we are all created in the image (spirit) of God, then the Love and Light of God shines through us whether we recognize it or not! Yes, Sabio… Let your light continue to shine. Make the world a better place!

  3. I visited Winchester Cathedral last year and they have a window which was smashed during the civil war by Cromwell’s men. They gathered up the fragments and used them to create a new window. There’s no clear design as it’s all a bit of a mismatch but I think it’s all the more beautiful for it.
