The Case for God

The Case for God May 13, 2019

For a fish, the Ocean is God

and its need to swim is

its want to know God.


For a bird, the Sky is God

and its urge to fly is

the flutter of its soul.


For a star, the Emptiness

that holds it is God and

the light it is born with

is all it knows.


What Ocean, Sky, or

Emptiness holds you?


A Question to Walk With: Describe all that is larger than you and how you are a part of that vastness.

This poem is from my book in progress, Where All the Questions Live.
