God Smells

Yes. God smells.

He smells like pine sap,

lemonade and fresh rain.

He smells like chocolate cake.

Like miracles that Grandma’s bake.

God smells like babies, kittens, and spice.

He smells like everything nice.

Old spice and candy canes.

Fresh snow and ocean rains.

He smells like apples ripening in the sun.

Fresh mowed grass.

Summer fun.

Yes, God smells like everything miraculous and ordinarily mundane.

He smells like hope and dreams, if they smelled like anything.

Most of all, God smells of sunshine and roses.

All the good things we breathe through our noses.

Yes. God smells.
