A Verbal Journey - Poem by AHO Speaks
Can I be intimate with God and not have touch?
Will my closeness be as a child to a family; that I love so much.
Can I love my creator without touching to give me a warm human feeling
Must I be satisfied to be separate and know what is revealing?
To only have a glimpse or a peek and remain apart
To acknowledge yet not in a place sanctified in my heart.
Told to love with my heart, mind, body and soul
Yet the realness does not illuminate me to recognize the whole.
God is here, there and everywhere; to include above and below
Can I love by just words that only let me know?
I saw God in the amazing creativity of a beautiul grasshopper
Wearing a gown of color that would have been a Broadway show stopper.
I saw God in the birth of my sons and every child
That its love for each of us is strong and not mild.
I see God in the goodness and acts of a struggling mankind
Always to protect the child and of you remind.
I have seen God in the excellence of the physical form
To know the gift of spirit is in each of us; when we are born.
I know God walks with the child, the lonely and also the weak
God does not deny those who cannot seek.
I know God provides for nature to enrich the harvest and bounty
May we always share; 'God Bless America; ' as a country.
