God’s Holy Laughter

Do you have a sense of humor Lord?
I asked in my despair
Must shadow preclude light
On every rose a thorny pair

Why must seeds and saplings
Along with sun need dark disdain
For once can Summer circumvent
Hostile winters
Spring’s raw…

And while I’m at it Lord
In humans such the like
The effort sometimes seems the same
An endless…

Our blooms they last such little time
So fragile to ones touch
Petals wilt with whispers
If words reach out to clutch

Before we know our time is passed
Seems before we e’er began
It once was slow and ne’er would end
Now …Where has it ran?

“If you notice child”,
In response I heard him say—
The flowers and all around you
Perhaps don’t see it your way.

The wind won’t stop to tell you
That you should be the worse
Or the more or the better
They don’t call you a blessing or a curse

They just be what they are
And accept the role they play
Rivers don’t wish to be the sea
Spring greets herself in the dawn of her day

So what mostly finds me smiling
Is when I see what I have made
Just being who I’ve made them
Not changing anything instead

For there is enough diversity
If you only would believe
That one of you is enough of you
And one of me is enough of me

And together if you let me
I can open up your eyes
And I will guide you through this Earth
And will meet face to face on the other side.
