A flash of God

I’m home, watching tv
when out the window
for an instance i glance

at a particular shade of tree
and an awareness so strange
promptly takes hold of me

Like i’m a part of it
sucked in, right at the heart
of this enlightened green

From the kitchen to be sure
on different a tree i behold
the spirit still lingering on

Watching tv, after a while
i dare look again, only to find
just some tree tops this time

Sometimes one’s antenna
accidentally homes in
on a distant frequency

A flash of God?
Certainly not the first time
God is calling from a bush
