A Poem: Alchemist

Do you see
how mountains erupt out of oceans.

Do you see how tears can make a flood,
but from the depths we still emerge.

Do you see how seasons fill their purpose,
though we might prefer the sun benign.

Do you see how everything is clearer,
and cleaner for the rain.

Do you see how nothing in Nature
is without design or reason.

That everything has its cause
and effect.

And though circumstances appear random,
God works in us,

amazing alchemist,
for our benefit.
