In the Garden

By, Sandra Monday

2016 August


I sit here in the gathering hush,

Of my son’s nap and the clatter,

Of Bella as she plays among

the uber pink Barbie Dream House.

I am reminded to reflect upon joy.

To turn the vinegar back into wine.

To savor the kosher salt on a piece of honey dew,

feeling it rough yet salty at the tip of my tongue.

I walk out to the lake with my Iced tea and solitude,

to take in the sheer sensuality of God’s creation.

Color, light, and matter dance in a sea

of atoms and photons.

He is the Matrix, the great I AM.

I feel We are drawing close to one another.

Something is being revealed to me; a profound mystery,

wrapped in synchronicity.

Everywhere I look and listen to

what He is telling me.

He says trust, fight back fear.

There is no need to control everything,

for I am the Master of all.

He says it in the language of butterflies dancing at my nose.

Sometimes it will be a line in a movie.

Or a book.

Or the sudden appearance of a chicken hawk

landing beside me.

Or a strange dream.

I hear Him in the notes of music;

in the laughter of children.

When my arms prickle,

He is the very electricity that powers my brain and body.

There is a sense of comfort and peace.

Like when you fell asleep

in the back of the car,

listening to your parent’s low chatter

on a road trip.

There are anxieties over the daily bread.

And war.

So trust is something to be worked at.

But it can be,

it will be,

it is.
