Do I See Him?

A misty splash of velvet glaze
Escapes the painter’s brush
Melting in a purple haze
Upon the morning hush
And as I stand in wordless awe
Bathed in daylight dim
Do I simply see the dawn?
Or do I see Him?

As duty calls my restless feet
And bids me cease my dreaming
Of shady haunts and lost retreats
And distant hills a-gleaming
A sigh escapes as I return
To duty’s flowing brim
But midst the dreams for which I yearn
Do I see Him?

As blacks and purples softly blend
In wisps of joy and sorrow
As heartache eases with a friend
And gives hope for tomorrow
Or as I pause at sunsets brink
With shadows growing dim
Do I simply pause to think?
Or do I see Him?
