National Poetry Month – Day 5

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.

You

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?
