On the Mercy Seat

I sat beside the creek  The ground blessed me with embodiment  The creek blessed me with song  Mosses blessed me with tenderness  Trillium blessed me with promise  Trees blessed me with wisdom  The sky blessed me with unlimitedness  Rocks blessed me with courage  Breezes blessed me with love  Birds blessed me with freedom  I sat on the mercy seat  There I met God
