PROMPT: This I Believe

13
I believe in wind, whispering though invisible
A waft of fresh breeze to invigorate my skin
I believe in gravity, the force of earth's pull
A steadying certainty hidden within

I believe in thunder, a clap of might
So loud it could break thought
I believe in skunk stench, for its acridness
Will leave me distraught

So I must believe in You, though I see you but little
For effects of Your might are not to be forgotten
You've made wind, gravity, thunder, and skunk
All these and more Your hand has begotten.

    Wow, this is beautiful! I love how you kinda personified each element, and how at the end you showed how it all pointed to God. Really nice imagery here! Great piece!
    Replying: Thanks! I’m so glad you liked it! I know “broken heart” is usually reserved for terrible sadness, but I feel like any heart that doesn’t belong to God yet is broken. But thank you!
    Oh, haha! That’s both funny and sweet XD.
