Oh, God of Sparrow, Lily, Dust and Sky

Source unknown

Oh, God of sparrow,
Lily, dust and sky,
Illuminate me now,
I ask You, come
And light the darkness
Of a life too full
Of noise and glamour
And of things unsure.
Awake me now
To Your simplicity,
And let me stand in awe
Of little things.


  1. I really like this one, Janie. The rhythm, the way the words flow, and the truth of it. Could I put it together with the picture into something that I could share on Pinterest? Of course, I would credit you with it, but I understand if you don't want to share it that way. -Kayla McK

    1. Thank you! I'm glad that you like it. I would be flattered if you chose to share it!

  2. Janie, this one is really excellent. My favorite of those of yours I've read this evening. Thank you for continuing to write and share your poetry, your talent.
