Poetry of God


This fall I went on retreat with poet Malcolm Guite and created this one afternoon. I had not written a poem in a long time.

Finding God in All


Distracted by beauty, seeing God in all things

Holiness whispering at every moment

Longing for attention, unfurling gentle wings


Snowflake kissing my cheek

Jolting me awake to the Presence

As only a Lover can, leaving knees weak


The kingdom of God near, here

Held unknowingly, grasp relentless

This earth only a tiny mirror


Generating joy in a hide-and seek game

Divining the Divine in cosmic wonder

Released from bindings of anger and shame


God in the spring and light;

God in the desert and dark

God in a never-ending glorious flight.


About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
