The world is a beautiful place
My soul lights up at the colours of the trees
and the sunlight pouring down through the leaves
like harp strings made of gold.
Land and sky twist in time, making music
that only my heart can hear.
When my fingers trail through lake water deeper than imaginable,
the Holy Spirit tangles more wildly into my mind and heart.
The way sunflowers run towards the sun despite their roots,
I will myself to become one with the water and one with God in heaven,
despite being made of dust from deep valleys.
Though I sometimes wonder how I fit into the beauty of this world,
I can’t help but look at everything else God created;
the world is made up of breathing art pieces,
each it’s own exhibit of the Artist’s endless talent.
I feel peace settle into my bones like a much needed sleep,
reminding me that I have the same Creator
and that I too am art to be seen and valued.
