God, Speak To Me

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, let me see you."
And a star shone brightly.
But the man did not notice.

And the man shouted, "God, show me a miracle!"
And a life was born.
But the man did not know.

So, the man cried out in despair.
"Touch me God, and let me know that you are here!"
 

Whereupon God reached down and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

  1. This forces deep inside.

    I think this is a enlightenment when you realizes that this universe is God's body. and we are all governed by something. everything is so perfectly calculated. we just tilt our head upward and laugh a little.

  2. a shrimp swam up to me, once, and climbed onto me.
    the water was turquoise and warm, in the sea of cortez.
    it wouldn't go away.
    i had to be careful not to harm it.
    a butterfly landed on me as well, far from the shore.
    i swam carefully back to the shallows to deposit the shrimp, and then to the beach, to deposit the butterfly.

  11. Hi Surjit,

    This happens so often. We don't see what's in front of us 'til it's gone; sometimes never.

    Thanks for this beautiful reminder.
