April 5 – I’ve decided to take a break from the prompts by @IndelibleInkWriters on Instagram today and do my own thing. Still a poem, however! I hope you enjoy.
I wonder what Your laugh is like.
Does it ripple like the sea?
Is it warm and soft like a teddy bear…
Would it make all my darkness flee?
Do Your eyes dance like wildflowers
When a breeze begins to blow?
Would they melt away my sadness
As the sun melts the winter snow?
Does Your smile play across Your lips
Like hummingbird wings flutter…
Or does it glide smoothly on,
As a seal would through the water?
Would Your arms be safe and loving,
As gentle as a breeze upon my face?
Are they a firm and unfailing shelter
…Like a cave’s alluring embrace?
Does Your love paint the sunset,
As it spreads quickly across the sky?
Is it the reason you made mountains,
Whose beauty makes me sigh?
And do I glimpse Your power
In a storm that cracks with lightening?
Does it rebuke as would the thunder,
With a voice deep and frightening?
And yet…Is it Your gentle spirit I feel
As I hold a newborn babe to my chest?
Did You give me such a picture
Of how that Spirit can bring me rest?
And does Your peace grow as beautifully
As the morning glories I so adore?
Is it like the calmness that settles into
My soul as I witness the ocean’s roar?
Does Your faithfulness stretch as far
As the universe seems to do?
Is that why my every question
Just leads me back to You?
