God said, “Repeat after me…”

God said it. The He said, “Now, repeat after me.”

God showed it. Then He said, “Now you try.”

I bent my head 
and furrowed my brow.
Sweat beaded on my forehead
and tears splattered onto my page.

God said, “My love. Don’t try so hard.”

And I breathed in the breath just breathed out by God.
I did.
I erased.
I did again.
I laughed.
And I looked. 
There was God smiling at me.

And God said, “There now. That’s just as I showed you.”

And it was good.
