Summer Spirit

If I could ever find God

it would be on this cold step

feeling the grace of a warm sun

kissing freckles onto my cheek.

If I ever heard god’s voice

it would ring against these walls

with the same sugary melody

as these summer song birds.

If I evert felt god’s presence

I imagine the waves of love

would keep me here floating

in a similar sense of peace.

but I haven’t found God

heard her voice or

felt her presence fall over me.

However, in this moment now:

with its glowing sun,

serenading birds,

and calm air,

well –

it has a special kind of divinity

all its own.
