God Blinked

God blinked
a sherbet sunrise peeked
sleepy songbirds stirred
the morning hours slipped

God smiled
the sun clung to a cloud
a crowd lazed on the lawn
the afternoon sped

God yawned
a salmon sunset sunk
workmen hurried home
the daylight dwindled down

God dozed
a crescent moon crept
souls securely slept
the stars fell from the sky

And God blinked.
