Clay Balloons – v3

God, the Creator,
active and hands on
touching us, our dirt,
the clay of our forms

Giving us life by His breath
able to fill even
clay balloons, of earth, of dust
able to fly by his breath

His Spirit animating the clay
until we return to the dust
from which we came

Our spirits freed
to rise to God
once more

Genesis 1:1-2:4a

giving us two creation stories

Jeremiah 18:1-4
