I thank you god for most this amazing day

Husband dashing out a bit late to work and I walk with him,
bathrobe wrapped tight against the cold. 
He drives off and I turn, my back to the sunrise, and see this...

I grab my camera, a quick shot
and just as fast it's little bright white is gone from my sight,
it's light spreading into this...

I close my eyes, turn my face to the heavens
and feel my Father's Light rising behind me, illuminating the world. 
God's presence felt,
as real as if you yourself were standing there behind me...

 i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
