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.  In honor of my son, Eli, whose birthday is today, adopted from a Chinese orphanage four years ago because someone saw the wonder in the chaos.
