Show Me God
Look very carefully into yourself
For God is living within your being,
Her gentle voice in every humble sigh
Consider a reflection of her in yon sky
In your spirit of love is her true essence.
Then, riding with the surf to the shoreline,
In a rush of wind out of somewhere,
Dipping beneath a red-glowing horizon,
God is here, too, one and the same.
The brush of her warm, loving hand,
Affirming your achievement of note.
Wherever joy gushes and bubbles
Whenever peace comes from troubles,
God is rarely found on a bookshelf
So, look very carefully into yourself.
