Attempting to describe God
By analogy to any of the infinite number of creatures or creations
In or outside this world –
Is a futile exercise.
It’s much better to approach God through negation –
God is not like ….
Which illustrates how God exists beyond language –
Even beyond mind itself.
God, however, does accept direct communications from the heart
With its inexpressible promptings of joy.
The best thing about God is all the surprises –
Both good and bad –
That throughout our lives God sends us as “presents” –
Which we unwrap with great anticipation and trepidation.
The last surprise, however,
Is the one that turns out to really be the last!
