The Rocks Cry Out

(based on Luke 19:40)

"I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."
- Jesus -

They watch the planets in the sky,
But of His workmanship deny,
And as they go about their day,
The rocks cry out to give Him praise.

They view the beauty of the land,
With mountain peak and desert sand,
And though it leaves them quite unfazed,
The rocks cry out to give Him praise.

They say it happened all by chance,
They never give a second glance,
And while their 'science' is displayed,
The rocks cry out to give Him praise.

There's evidence in what they see,
Design in nature's chemistry,
While they are trapped inside their maze,
The rocks cry out to give Him praise.

He speaks through everything He made,
But there are some He can't persuade,
And as they turn and walk away,
The rocks cry out to give Him praise.

I believe there is a soul in every living thing and depending on your level of consciousness and phylum will determine how veiled it's soul is, us being the most conscience and the rocks being the least but yes the they cry out and even they as dumb as they may be know who to give praise to. Good write, great subject, I love it thank you

This is a very nice poem. By the use of the iambic tetrameer you have given the theme a sing song effect. The last couplet does not rhyme. Easy to change by saying "turn to other ways" the ways would then rhyme with praise. Only a minor criticism. I should like to see you put this theme and content into a sonnet form. It wants a very sober structure.

I like the poem, which is written well, though I confess I wasn't familiar with this one biblical phrase, and I'm still not sure of the entire meaning. I'm sure it's my own ignorance.

A-MEN! I'd say more, but why!

This is my kind of writing! Truth cannot be shunned. This is biblical in nature and raises the same old questions, who built what and when? I prefer to think it was the Divine Creator, Yahweh! Biblical poems tend to find their own flow and their imagery seems to be automatic, of course, the poet must be inspired. This one is no exception. Great poem, David!
