00401 The First Time - Poem by Michael Shepherd

There's a first time
for everything
said God
giving the Word
to start it all

there's a first time
for everything

I've just read
your poems

and I feel so good
that for the first time
I laughed at Envy,
kicked it around the room,
laughed some more,
kicked it some more

I feel so good

in the corner
there's Envy taking the count

    Dear Michael,

    A lovely write. God as the author of all creative impulse expresses through each of us in a way to glorify the co-Creator we are and in that spark of creativity, we may find our truest connection to Spirit.

    Blessed be,
