God's Fingers - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

the orange
when ripe
turns yellow
the yellow colour
is god's finger
pointing to its sweetness
the morn
comes with brightness
the brightness
is god's finger
pointing to the warmth
of the sun
so long i have equated
god with what he is not
that he speaks
with symbols
to find that
god's fingers
index fingers
are here, there and
at the sea too
i hear him serenading
a song

    This is really nice, John, but I would like to have seen you tell what happens when God's fingers point to the sea. More, more!
