Untitled (when I look)

When I look at a tree,

I want to be like the tree.

Rooted deep, reaching heavenwards

catching the breeze and letting it go.


When I look at the ocean,

I want to be like the ocean.

Ever changing, ever mysterious

ebbing and flowing in just the right rhythm.


When I look at a fire,

I want to be like the fire.

Captivating, calming, mesmerizing, inviting

like elemental jazz music.


But when I look at the person in front of me,

and I mean really look,

I want to be like the Christ,

because what I'm seeing

is the image of God.
