All life is a poem

All life is a poem
     sometimes comedy
     sometimes tragedy
but always beauty.

Too many fail to notice
     the rhythms
     and cadences
     in their lives,
reading life as if it were
     a newspaper article
     and not a work of art.

But God is a Creator of beauty
     and not just a reporter of fact.

Oh that we would live poetic lives!
     not atonal drudgery
     but melodic dance,
with eyes to see
     evidences of God's creative hand
and ears to hear
     how our own notes
     even when played in the minor key
     are essential to all creation's harmony.
