This Spring, Awaken to your Divine Life – A Poem

Share this story!

By Christi Ortiz

After our time of hibernation and rest

we slowly awaken to Your Divine Life

beginning to gurgle up into Creation

springing it into fruition


The plants begin to come to life

with Your Pulse quickening within them

and we smell your Creativity at play

in billions of species of all sizes, colors,

and aromas all around us growing in some unknown harmony and Divine Intelligence

that we cannot even begin to grasp


And birds of all kinds begin their songs

of Praise to You, oh Maker

as the animals nestle and nurse

their younglings to life

And all creation breathes in this warm freshness

of a new beginning


We have shaken off the last ice crystals of the past

as we arise from the much needed

bareness of winter

and let the Sun penetrate us deep within

and warm us to the core

as we soak

in the warmth of your Love

and rejoice

in Your Promise,

“my tender mercies are renewed every morning”
