God's butterfly touch

Came across this beautiful poem today in this daily prayer book.....

The man whispered, ‘God speak to me’
and a meadowlark sang.
But the man did not hear.
So the man yelled, ‘God, speak to me’
and the thunder rolled across the sky.
But the man did not listen.
The man looked around and said,
‘God, show me a miracle!’
and new life was born.
But the man did not know.

So the man cried out in despair,
‘Touch me, God,
and let me know you are here!’
whereupon God reached down
and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away,

and walked on.
