    The breath of God
    Blows me over,
    Brushes me to and fro.

    Sends chills
    Down my spine.
    Teaches me things
    I should know.

    It leads me,
    Like a shepherd
    To a better land.
    Feeds me ever
    So slowly,
    Gently, from his Hand.

    His love so thunderously
    Potent
    It drives away all pain.
    His mercy &
    Wonderful kindness
    Helps me believe again.

    Oh the wondrous
    Breath of God,
    That touches me
    Each day.
    Softly flittering past
    My life in such
    A moving way.

    With each small breeze
    That He allows,
    Things inside me change.
    The anger, hurt, & other things
    Begin to lose their reign.

    He gently carries me
    On His wings,
    Holding my spirit true.
    Gliding smoothly
    Through my heart and
    Getting rid of all the blue.

    The rainbow of my heart
    Now comes with
    Yellows, reds, and greens.
    For when the Lord
    Is welcomed in
    He has to change the scene.

    He kicks out all the
    Dirt & junk that
    I have held so dear.
    He erases all the yucky mess..
    Doubts, strife, and fears.

    He loves me so much
    That he sent His son
    To die upon that tree
    So that he would
    Rise again
    And set my spirit free.

    He didn’t promise
    All my days
    Would be rosey, purple passion pink.
    But he did say
    That he’s always here,
    Even when I don’t think.

    So when you’re walking
    And you feel that touch
    That rustles through the trees,
    Close your eyes,
    Lift up your heart,
    You have just witnessed
    When God breathes.

    Shawnie,
    This was simply BEAUTIFUL! It is so true, even the wind sends his messages to us. Funny, cause I took a long walk today, and it was raining lightly, thinking about my sister. My sister just passed away this month on the 7th, and when I heard something strange, or a russle, I said that was her telling me she is ok and by his side. I am sorry to write so much, just that your poem really moved me, and reminded me of that. Take Care sister, and thank you for writing this, AGAIN IT'S BEAUTIFUL. Much Luv'.

    Hey SHAWNIE - PAINTEDDIARY describes this very well with "simply beautiful" -----> I'd take it a step further and say that this write is exquisitely breathtaking... Ah - To know the breath of God...

    The anger, hurt, & other things
    Begin to lose their reign.


    So many - I assume anyway - should know the feeling of hateful things losing their reign... I myself - wish to know this feeling.

    Beautiful piece SHAWNIE - Thanx for sharing such heartfelt spirituality!

    Jacquii.

    This is a poem that is good in its conciseness and brevity. It's rhymes well. This is a poem with meaning. And afterall I think that such sincerity and straightforward honesty is of the noblest of pursuits for a poem. I always prefer a poem with good meaning over a poem that is purely technical. As a reader (and a person) I think I am better off for hearing this poem.
