An Attempt To Understand God - Poem by RIC BASTASA

you have seen God
in the eyes of the child

you shall see more of His face
in another man's anguish

or his bliss
you shall see more of God

in a woman's hands
earlier on her beautiful face

you do not notice God in
time's passage

you miss Him when you think so much
it is only when

the sand in the glass is empty
that you can hear him speak

louder, it is when you do not
desire water to fill that thirst

that you experience Him deeper
when you are lost that you can

finally find Him, when you finally
love death, that you can feel that

Life in Him, when you flow like
a leaf on the surface of the flowing

creek, that you shall know his Will.
