Indescribable

To describe him is an impossible task
He is literally everything
And yet so often
We don’t even recognize him
And I ask myself this…
How can someone be “all”
In every way imaginable
But not be revered as such
Are we that full of ourselves
Consumed by the cosmos
The one that He created
That we choose to disregard him
Without hesitation most days
All because he doesn’t suit
Our desirous and covetous needs
I feel I fail miserably
Right in the front of the One
Who gave me my whole life
What does that say about me
What does that say about any of us?

* Just as I finished writing this piece this morning, and was reading it out loud to myself, a freak snow storm came out of nowhere, with snowflakes the size of my fists.  I don’t even know how to describe the wave of emotions that washed over me in that moment.  It was truly indescribable.  God always is…

One last wish

michigan-1823988_1280

Searching the depths
Of the starry night sky
Arms reaching out
With tears in her eyes

And yet once again
There was no reply
So she made her last wish
And said a final goodbye

The stars stood on standby

stars

The stars stood on standby
Each one wordlessly waiting for a sign
To move their fixed positions
And finally realign

Yet the gesture never came
And so they kept their rooted stances
Waiting in anticipation
For a word from the far expanses

Cynicism made them grow dim
And caused some to fall from the heavens
And those are the few
Who have left considerable impressions

The remainder still wait
In a state of restless apprehension
Biding their time
In the hopes of a fourth dimension
