God Is Smiling

so, now

observe the thick rose blossom

peel back each petal,

layer upon layer

your search engenders a heady scent

the softness is a marvelous delicate moment.

eager to continue

you move to the core

and with the petals all gone

what did you expect

but there He is,

God is smiling,

looking

through the layers

of who you have been

and the scented trail you left behind,

we are like the rose

peeled back to the core

God is patiently watching as we arrive.
