breathing to know you

God, I breathe you in
the sweet-strong
full-ripe lingering

i see you
in warm colors
across the sky

i see you
dance broad leaves
in the wind

i see you
like a thousand lit lilies
burning on the waves

i sit quietly
breathing
to know you

D, I was looking out over the Indian Ocean and I said, "Creation, tell me about your Maker." This wee poem comes out of my memory of that time.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Rest.
