Creation Care poem — Susan Brecht, USA

The Light of God, a poem for Creation Care Month

The light of God surrounds me,
guiding me on my path.

It opens my eyes to wonder,
as the world around me bursts into colour.

It fills me with joy and awe
at the beauty of God’s creation.

Leaves shimmer and dance in the breeze
as the light of God shines on them.

The rocks above grace the skyline.

The light dances on the water
as it cascades down the mountain.

The light of God surrounds me,
as birds soar overhead,
and ground squirrels scamper across my path.

I see that all nature is filled with God’s light.
It is a part of everything.

The light of God allows all the worries and cares I carry with me
to fall away,
as I rest in the present moment,
at one with nature and God.

The light of God surrounds us all.
Open our eyes to see and give thanks.
