God the Artist

  Thou takest the pen -

  and the lines dance.

  Thou takest the flute -

  and the notes shimmer.

  Thou takes the brush -

  and the colours sing.

  So all things have meaning and beauty

  in that space beyond time where Thou art.

  How, then, can I hold back anything from Thee?
