Open the Shutter!



How do I let God in my life?

      I was once asked in the mist.

I turned my head slowly and eagerly answered this,

      My only recipe to undying bliss:


I open my shutter and I open it wide

I let the light shine bright and I let it inside


It fills my abyss with angels of delight

It warms my bones and it rejuvenates them right


Company it brings with a thousand twinkling stars

Beauty it exudes and poetry it sparks


Loneliness then desists and perfect harmony insists

Purpose and meaning ultimately result and coexist


All this I get when my camera opens its shutter from left to right

When my soul welcomes the sun and ends the night


I now live all of this day in and day out

All because I realized God is always within and never without
