a psalm of praise and wonder in color on parade
I think I went in search of…lilt…today
and found it in the red and gold and orange confetti falling from the sky,
tiptoe-dancing on my hair and shoulders,
skittering, bowling, chasing across roads,
blowing out in gales of laughing leaves
Like bubbles from a wand.
Camera to my eye, I reach to capture and hold this glory
-it is swirling like all my thoughts around me –
but it only sings gaily, merrily, catch me if you can!
Your breath lifts my hair from my shoulders
takes a little of the sorrow wedged in heart this week
and sends it up, up, up…
The tears so ready behind my eyes are welling even more at all this splendor.
Thank you Father, for color, color, everywhere!
It soars my spirit, flows your peace, sings a song of Heaven over and around me.
And standing on a country road, in the middle of it all, I find it also sends words of wonder aloud from my mouth…
There is no other like you.
