What if beauty
Is God’s shouts of joy over us?
What if the soft breezes on our cheeks
Are whispers of his love?
What if the crashing waves on the shore
Are displays of his passionate strength?
What if all of nature
Is but a part of an unending chorus of praise?
What if I stepped aside, stopped awhile,
Listened to these voices ringing out near and far?
How different would I be
In this world?
Would I do my part to care for and protect
Would I see their vital role
In the life of our planet?
Would I acknowledge the mystery of life woven together
both physically and spiritually?
Would I join the chorus
With my unique song of wonder and love?
