"I'll Believe It When..." (poem)

Poetic Asides: "For this week’s prompt, take the phrase “I’ll Believe It When (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write your poem."

I left the blank part blank.

~ I’ll Believe It When… ~

When I perceive music as an assortment of decibels
When the palette of the morning is reduced to one color
When I attribute that look to the mixture of pheromones
When I deny the miracle imprinted on a child’s face -
Then I’ll believe it. I’ll believe that there’s no God.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
