Sonnet: God Is Within

I search’d for God ’midst flowers, leaves, things green!
In every living thing that I could see;
I looked for Him in everything with sheen;
I saw His art but God I couldn’t truly.

I search’d for God in every moving beast,
In animalcules, Mammoths seen no more;
’Midst mountains, rivers, vales, seas, west and east;
I found His touch but could not see his core.

I search’d for Him in Space, amidst the stars;
Sun, moon and galaxies, all things afar;
And people had in His name fought great wars;
I failed to see God by spaceship to Mars!

In frustration, I look’d within my heart,
And Lo! I found Him laugh, amidst his art.
