TITLE: Praise for funny things

It's funny
how beloved tunes
send shivers up my spine,
how worshipping in song
connects with the Divine.

When sunset clouds ignite,
when roses' scents delight,
my spirit, still and quiet,
rejoices and takes flight.

It's funny
how a full-grown man
weeps at a baby's birth,
how its tiny hand surpasses
every other hand on earth.

When waves pound on a beach,
when fifty parrots screech,
when clouds swirl out of reach,
it's a sermon without speech.

It's funny,
how beauteous things
make faces smile,
how intricate things
our minds beguile.

When lightning cracks the sky,
when thunder booms nearby,
then rain pours like a sigh,
it's a gentle lullaby.

It's funny
how every single thing
is God's creation,
how every breath of life
is revelation.

When sunshine warms my skin,
when loved by friend and kin,
when praises rise within,
my thankful prayers begin.

Praise for funny things,
the joy that each one brings.
My heart within me sings.
I soar on eagles' wings.

Praise to God on high.
Lord of earth and sky,
Lord of where and why,
You deeply satisfy.

I liked this poem because it made me feel happy about simple pleasures, about seeing God's love in everything. Nice job.

This is a lovely poem about the mysteries of earth. You did a fabulous job of painting a picture with your words.

Love these pictures that repeatedly show the power of the simple and innocent to disarm the pace and sophistication that too often passes itself off as real life.

What a delightful story. It never ceases to amaze me how less words convey more meaning. You did a great job.
