I asked God His Favorite Color

Updated: Sep 28, 2019

I asked God His favorite color

and He reached for my memories

The aurora dancing green and red

like visions of sugarplums in children's heads

The dark winter sky showing stars above

evergreens and mountain scenes


I asked God His favorite color

and He took me home to

the rosy pink of Alaska's nighttime sun

glinting off Denali's peak

The riotous colors of summer gardens

and the violet shades of fireweed fields

rusting into red as

seasons pass and summer ends


I asked God His favorite color

and He reminded me

Of all the times and places

I wished I knew how to paint

Of cityscapes and candle light

Of mountaintops and riverbeds

Of daisy fields and daffodils

Of creatures that flutter and fly and

Of creatures that will never know the sky


I asked God His favorite color

and he showed me the ocean's sunrise

oranges turning to pinks mixing with waves of blue and white

Golden light encompassing the shore

full of sandcastles from the night before

revealing treasures of shells children adore


I asked God His favorite color

and He showed me the desert's sunset

reds and golds turning to purple-blue

so dark it feels like nothing and yet

so clear the stars feel like everything

The milky way shimmering above as

though they lead to Heaven's Gate


I asked God His favorite color

and He asked me to look around

We walked city streets and desert roads

as dusk and dawn came again.

We saw children color streets with chalk

We saw dreamers painting walls

Spilling their hopes onto their canvases

Begging to make a difference


I asked God His favorite color

and He told me a story

Of a boat

Of a flood

Of a promise

A promise made of colors and dreams


I asked God His favorite color

and He told me


His favorite colors are the colors of His people.



My photos of the times I wished I could paint.
