Better Than God

by Michael Channing

rivers rise and swell with the rain
pulse in time
to the rush in my veins
river is a better word than god for me

warm winds howl through canyon throats
whispering wonders
in the voices of trees
wind is a better word than god for me

the ocean's waves wash me clean
i'm born again
on an empty beach
ocean is a better word than god for me

fire is a better word than soul
kiss is a better word than prayer
forest is a better word than church
rain is a better word than god

Better Than God
