In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1 (ESV)

Who has ever heard the wind
along a forest’s leafy pathway
and not known you,
or waves slapping a rocky shore
and the tender melody of a small bird above so much noise

Who has ever seen the brilliant splendor of a distant sunset
and not known you
or stony towers in all their white glory and the lights of heaven ever sparkling even through so much darkness

Who has ever felt the warmth of the morning sun upon their sweaty brow
and not known you
or a cool breeze on a summer’s eve
and the thrill of one more day to live in spite of so much indifference
