Theophany

 a mystical bridge to my secret place in the woods

My name is Philip

I’m sure it must be

As today I sought

A Theophany

With hope to the wood

To hear, feel and see

An affirmation

Of His will in me

But what did I hear?

No formal decree;

A spring mountain stream

In swift jubilee

And what did I feel?

His breath blowing free

Pinecones and needles

From swaying pine trees

What was the vision?

A vision of glee!

Dances on branches

Of a chickadee

Did God hear my plea?

Well, would you agree?

I am convinced that

He answered all three.
