Looking for a Sign

In the early morning darkness I go out
to see if I dare ask God for a sign.
No animal or man is yet about
and presently a quiet calm is mine.

On impulse I remove my bedroom shoes.
I feel the new-mown grass beneath my feet,
now wet with drops of freshly fallen dew.
I had forgotten morning was so sweet.

With no moon or stars the sky is stark;
the east reveals no hint of rising sun.
A silence even deeper than the dark
prevails. The noisy day has not begun.

To simply feel God's presence here is bliss;
I could not ask for clearer sign than this.

I know God makes "quiet calms" for all of us so that He may indeed speak to us. It's ironic that so much of our hearing comes in our seeing what He is saying through a dew drop, a morning mist, a spider silk so well placed that only God could do it. Thank you for this image and poem. God is winking at you two.
