Goddess, Are You Real?

The little child whispered, "Goddess, speak to me."
And a meadowlark sang. But the child did not hear.
So the child yelled, "Goddess, speak to me!"
And the thunder rolled across the sky.
But the child did not listen.
The child looked around and said, "Goddess let me
see you." And a star shone brightly.
But the child did not notice.
And the child shouted, "Goddess show me a miracle!"
And a life was born. But the child did not know
So the child cried out in despair, "Touch me
Goddess, and let me know you are here!"
Whereupon the Goddess reached down and touched
the child. But the child brushed the butterfly away
and walked away unknowingly.
