A Glimpse of God




It is the vast ocean,
yet one tiny grain of sand.

It is the rain that feeds the river,
yet the tears of just one man.

It is a meteor that lights up the dark,
yet the lights reflection from one creature's eyes.

It is the instinctive migration of geese,
yet one hummingbird in hovered flight.

It is the tall deep forest,
yet one flower that is rare.

It is the undeniable crash of thunder,
yet the wind's testimony that is unseen, but we know it is there.
