My Journey to God

Sing for Me

I love the sounds of birds singing
Early in the morning,
Like miniature alarm clocks
All going off at once
In a cacophony of exuberance.

The tree outside my window
Is where they gather to
Greet the dawn, moving on
To their daily lives after
Making sure I am awake.

I hear the Holy Spirit in birdsong,
Feel God’s love wrap around me
Like wings of mama bird
Enfolding her chicks.
