Had I been God,

clouds would be lilac

and lilacs would be white.

 

Had I been God,

the grass would glow

as your homing guide.

 

Had I been God,

each breath you took

would enliven a sprite.

 

Had I been God,

the length of your braid

would mirror your mind.

 

Had I been God,

the skin you showed

would burn fingers of fiends.

 

Had I been God,

your voice would increase

with the efforts to quench its might.

 

Had I been God,

your might would be in your heart

instead of your hands.

 

Had I been God,

all colors will have homes

in your hueless sight.

 

Had I been God,

the world would be wielded

by the emerald wild.

 

Had I been God…

perhaps I was, perhaps I might.
