God’s Face

by Brian Francis

Life abounds as nature’s gambles find a way
breathing in deep a full embrace with relish
oceans with the flavor of life in solution
wash in waves stirring the margin a beckoning call
forests rife with gifts of love from a caring mother
a table in full regalia in constant harvest
gather it and honor the sacrifice of nature
more a sign of respect than an act of worship
the gifts of the cornucopia of life for us.

Yet all of this is not enough as stars calling
offer a promise of fulfillment yet unattained
As dreams drive us to peer deeper to dream more
to imagine a tomorrow of our own making
A future where we reach out and touch god’s face
in doing so we become aware of the reflection in the mirror
Compassion’s tears wash away the self image created
delusions shatter bearing their many faceted falsehoods
painted upon our souls while dreaming our dreams
