A Poem

a love above all other loves

a hatred without reason

a container for anything

under a white steeple


god was just a barren idea

god was something they told us to believe in

a structure to follow

a home to call ours


a plane crashed in the city

a girl lost her footing

a nonbeliever’s proclamation

over the storm’s scattered wreckage


god is a feeling thing

god is within us


a humming of presence

a fingertip out of reach


Inspired by "Home" – Zbigniew Herbert

    Lovely ❤️❤️

  • I think god would be pleased with this sensibility. We who are religious tend to think that god must be honored, revered, placed on a pedestal to be feared & worshiped, when all god truly wants is to be present with us. As an ordained minister, I find your use of the lower case "g" extremely meaningful, downright incarnational.

  • "A humming of presence". That was my favourite line. Loved your poem. Hope you're doing well 🥰🥰🥰
