Fireworks

Open your eyes and the whole world is full of God.
Jakob Bohme

Like a bursting firework rocket
Shouting out the praise
Of God the master craftsman
Crafting wonderful displays.

Tight inside a sprouting seed
Bulging up the stalk and now,
Building, growing, bursting bud
From inside out kapow—oh wow!

Grow me up inside, Jesus;
Fill me up with your true life
Stuff me so full I swell and burst 
A colorful blossom sparked with fire.
