God's Gifts

Who can count the gifts that we receive?
The blessings about us inter weave:

The image of a special, loved one's face,
a snowy, lifted seagull's wheeling grace,
the subtle color of a dewy flower,
vast color change of sky at twilight's hour.

See skilled precision of a knit design,
the vivid twining of a scarlet vine,
dear rhythm of a friend's familiar walk,
expression of face changing as we talk.

Unfolding of a newly budded leaf,
appearance of the actual seals belief,
our heart in awe and thankfulness then lifts
when open heart and eyes behold God's gifts.
