Some poets enjoy exploring beauty in nature –
While others prefer “punching out” big ideas.
Some poets muse about where we came from –
While others look ahead to where we might be going.
Some poets get depressed and lie down in their cups –
While others become, and sometimes remain, righteously angry.
But the greatest poets – the truly great ones –
Look right into the face of divine nothingness
And express the inexpressible.
The truly great ones fall so deeply in love with the Holy
That they write shy “spiritual letters” to eternity
Which sometimes provoke surprising responses from God
And anyone fortunate enough to stumble upon this holy correspondence.
Before you put them on – spiritually, you can’t see a thing
But when you place them astride your nose
And look directly through their clear lenses –
You’ll “see” what God sees.
When you put these glasses on,
You’ll immediately be changed into a new person –
Transfigured, like Jesus,
Into someone “born again” –
Able to see the world like a new-born baby
While still retaining all your lifetime experiences.
Really, if you want to “see” just like God does –
Put on these special “love” glasses –
