God, You Are

by Chandra T. Mountain

You are…
the steadying quiet of the morning before the day rushes in,
crashing against my plans and schemes;
the gentle brush of warmth soft on my cheek
when my spirit bows to weariness;
the calm enveloping my soul
as I am crossing over to anxiety and restlessness;
the baptism of sunlight ushering in beauty and delight,
bringing sweet repose to a soul unsettled and worn.
You are…my song of consolation and joy.
