God comes in many colors, many flavors –
A fan opens:
Breathe fire down from dark mountains above –
Flipping the fan over –
Are dancing in a perfect circle –
At the center of that circle
A lone deer drinks.
God knows everything by “knowing” nothing –
God doesn’t need to “know” – because God simply is.
So, isn’t it true that, sometimes, we can learn the most about God
When we’ve forgotten God entirely.
Pulling on our boots, we decide to go out –
Where are we going?
To find God, of course, the God of many colors,
Many flavors –
The God who we no longer remember
Because, unfortunately, we somehow, somewhere, have misplaced
Our true selves.
To read this first thing in the morning was perfect!
Thank you for the gift!
