There You Are



I see you in plain beauty sculpted by God's hand.
I see you in ocean waves
and fine littoral sand.

I hear you in meadowlarks chorused top of trees.
I hear you in musicals
and happy melodies.

I scent you in wildflowers scattered across hills.
I scent you in red roses
and trumpet daffodils.

I taste you in pudding cakes parboiled over flame.
I taste you in the garden
and wild animal game.

I feel you in mild zephyrs wafted upon sails.
I feel you in a cloudburst
and corybantic gales.

I sense you in soft shadows stippled on my mind.
I sense you in all nature
and everything I find.
