Treetops A meditation on the Cooper

Treetops- a Meditation on the Cooper

Look up
stretching, never touching, the spindly treetops reach for the clouds
Glance down
In the rippling water, the treetops dive below the surface brushing the clouds
and in the movement of the river, the branches sway slightly
Look up
tranquil, majestic, at peace in their stillness


I know GOD


He’s in the guy crossing the 10k finish line
I see Him as the complex emotions cross his face

He’s in the guy singing for change in the subway
I experience Him when we join our voices

He’s in the yoga class
I feel Him in my breath, bones and muscles as strength and beauty and release

He’s in my golden retriever Sierra
I nuzzle Him in the softness of her coat

He’s in my home
I cherish Him as I gaze upon my sleeping husband and children
