Staying Power

Rating: 4.3
Like Gorky, I sometimes follow my doubts
outside to the yard and question the sky,
longing to have the fight settled, thinking
I can't go on like this, and finally I say

all right, it is improbable, all right, there
is no God. And then as if I'm focusing
a magnifying glass on dry leaves, God blazes up.
It's the attention, maybe, to what isn't there
that makes the emptiness flare like a forest fire

Lovely piece of poetry, well articulated and nicely penned in poetic diction with spiritual insight. Thanks for sharing Jeanne. Please read my poem COLOSSAL MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE.

''and a voice you love whispers hello.'' I was used to have a recurrent dream, for a period, many years ago.. a voice I once loved calling me.. well, it never happened.. ;)
