A new day


February 6, 2007

As daylight breaks
And the world is a new
I realize that I am the feather of the blue bird's wing

As the clouds part
Allowing the sun's light to shine
I realize that I am the petal on the rose in the garden

As the wind blows
Spinning the leaves around and around
I realize that I am the tree from which they have left

As I look around me
I realize that...
I have flown on the wings of the blue bird
Felt the beauty of a rose
Allowed the strength of the roots of a tree to keep me grounded

I have experienced God.
