Is That You?

I turned over a rock, I held a leaf in my hand.
I saw the glitter in the desert sand.
I said God, is that you I see?
And he answered, 'yes juan, it's me.
now I don't pretend I talk to God,
When I look for seeds inside a pod.
Or when I feel the breeze upon my face,
Or see the clouds of paper lace.
But I know he's there just the same,
After all, what's in a name?
I know he's there, looking over me,
If not for him, where would I be.
So don't look for answers in some far off place,
The answer is there, before your face.

And love is fire. Good sonnet with a good rhyme scheme Of Abba Abba.... A good example of the Petrarchan or Italian sonnet SylvaOnyema Uba.
There's nothing low in love.... I love it 😍
(Sonnet X: Yet Love, Mere Love - Poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.) There's nothing low In love, when love the lowest: meanest creatures Who love God, God accepts while loving so.
