Lila

I went with my beloved
hand in hand through a green park

I longed to see God in all things
there were children playing

wild laughing things
their mothers watching

I prayed for some sign to reveal
the divine in all a toy ball

bumped against my foot
I caught it and gave it to a child

who followed
I am Lila, she said

and ran away to her game
