On the nature of creativity

It becomes the task of those who breathe
the mirror God within
to walk among us as God does:
to see as God sees
to know as God knows
to embrace as God embraces;
to celebrate as God celebrates
the divine creativity
that lurks in every moment;
to bear witness to the fact
that a puddle,
or a bug,
may have its own heroic content,
to watch the lily
pause in her disrobing
to kiss her own divine reflection
and become One
even as her petals sink,
grayed and fragile
to lie on my kitchen floor.
