GOD

I do not often write about God
but, this poem captures where I can find God!
__________________________
GOD
I heard a redbird just at dawn
And saw it peering on the lawn
Then I felt God.

I witnessed sun upon the sea
As it displayed its majesty
Then I felt God.

I watch seeds planted in the earth
In their own ways they all give birth
And there moves God.

A baby tries its first small smile
And holds my finger all the while
Then I see God.

My heart's swift beat when love awoke
Freed me from any earthly yoke
Then I knew God.

    ~~A baby tries its first small smile

  3. Lovely Margie... I especially like:

    "My heart's swift beat when love awoke
    Freed me from any earthly yoke
    Then I knew God."

    Presence in verse... lovely!

  7. I have always felt that: if you boiled us all down and condensed the vapors, that would be God. 'Course then I am accused of "being" God. In a way, I guess, a small part.
    Peace

  12. Very moving! God is apparent in the most simplest of things. It is reassuring and most calming.

  13. very touching poem..guess it also reconfirms our faith that gods not in churches or temples but in these little miracles of life...

    Yes, God is more in the little miracles of every day life than in
    buildings where poeple go to worship him... at least that is my
    belief!
    Take care!
