Inspired by poetry

Today's journal page was to be inspired by a poem, so I chose this one of my own:

At His footfall
The earth gives voice
Flowers bow down
The pebbles rejoice
Lightning sings a lullaby
Thunder hims the tune
The sun bobs a curtsey
Copied by the moon
Stars applaud ecstatically
Mountains bend the knee
Sea prostrates herself, my friend
In unremitting glee
Creation can't be silenced
In the presence of the King
We, too, are His handiwork
What worship do we bring?

The green colours are to represent all things living. I used some gold and copper leafing, but it doesn't show up so well in the photos.
