! What We See As...

Rating: 2.2

What we see as nouns
are verbs to God…

see the water in this glass –
clear and still;

taste the water in this glass –
its sweet taste with no taste..

watch the Spring rain;
smell the earth give thanks

see the washing blowing on the line
smelling happy to be clean

see the mighty river, fierce
to reach the sea

watch the evening sea-fog roll in over the bay;
see the city washed afresh in the morning sun;

look up to the glorious theatre of clouds,
obeying water’s laws for all to watch;

know what mercy is; how it descends – appears,
as the gentle rain from heaven within;

what we see as nouns
are verbs to God

I like the whole idea of this poem but wish you would expand it a bit. This is both creative and holy...and opens my mind to new vistas. Nice work, Michael Raynette

So Michael are you a noun, or in surrender will you be God’s verb?
