What is Life?


Heat is not life
A white raging inferno owns no warmth
The yellow searing sun wavers not

Movement is not life
A crystal river knows only the lowest way to the sea
The blue wind blows every flag

Respiration is not life
A ruby crowned mountain exhales with no lung
The brown nail inhales air for decay

Healing is life
A wound restored with the mercy of fresh pink skin
The rebirth of awareness after the despair of black confusion

Change is life
A breaking of free fall toward gray gloom and despair
The swimming against the tide into golden light of forgiveness and grace

Creation is life
A seed sprouting into the green tenderness of growth
The two join as one in the purple mystery of a new soul's beginning

God is heat. . .
God is movement. . .
God is respiration. . .
God is healing. . .
God is change. . .
God is creation. . .

God is my life. . .

Thank you my God. . .
Thank you my Lord. . .

I give thanks. . .

Dave
