A Natural High

A Natural High

Holy Eternal God,
You are the Source
of endless
wonderment,
delight,
and fun.  

It is hard to fathom
how anyone could doubt it –
here,
surrounded by starlight,
and warmed
by the sun.

Who else could
paint the mountains purple,
teach the salmon
how to jump,
or design
the platypus?

And what about
the meerkats,
the ants, the elephants,
the ostriches and otters;
the goldfish, zebras,
and eagles …

the frogs and foxes,
bears,
buzzards and bees,
the turtles,
tigers,
and armadillos?

You never rush,
but take Your own sweet time
and let life
evolve and change
to keep things
interesting.

An Artist
never constrained
by rules,
never bereft of ideas,
never hesitant
to take a chance;

to risk,
to create,
to desire,
to love,
to embrace
and to let go,
to empty out
and to fulfill …

from the greatest
to the least,
all bear
Your majestic,
awe-inspiring
imprint.

And I breathe
deeply, reverently,
inspired
and elated
by the glorious splendor
of your wondrous works.
