I Am -Self Portrait

Leona-name Art
Alphabet Art by Leona J. Atkinson

I am my mother’s face in the mirror,

As I speak her favorite quotes

To myself, that “This Too Shall Pass”.

I am dad’s voice echoing,

“Don’t Forget, Smell The Flowers”.

I am God’s Spirit,

Reflecting Him

To the world,

At this

Time.

IAM-God of the Present

IAM, Yahweh, ABBA, art card

I am right here

I am in your now

I am very near

I am right here

My word is clear

I keep my vow

I am right here

I am in your now

Triolet

God says His name is I AM

He is God of the present, the now.

He says:

“When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard for you because I am not there.

My Name is not: I WAS.”

“When you live in the future with its unknowns and fears, it is hard for you because I am not there.

My Name is not: I WILL BE.”

“But when you live in this moment, it is not hard, because I am here. My Name is: I AM.”

Inspiration

Original photo of a soap bubble

I am the morning dew glistening

I am the sun shining

I am a bird singing

I am a flower blooming

I am a squirrel scurrying

I am the wind swirling

I am a leaf falling

I am a tear on a cheek

I am an aging voice

I am a child’s laughter

I am a stranger’s smile

I am a mother’s hug

I am a spoken word

I stand at your door knocking

I stand waiting for you to find me

I stand in the silence of night

I stand amid the noisy throng

I stand among your daily moments
