A POEM ABOUT GOD

Rebecca Garrett Pace
--
PAUL TO THE ATHENIANS SPOKE BABBLE
THIS NEWS OF A GOD UNKNOWN
NOW GOD IS LOVE MOST PERSONAL

Pilate to Jesus spoke riddle
What is truth?
Now God is Truth most knowable

Composers ancient and new speak melody
Magnum Mysterium
Now God is Mystery most incredible

The psalmists to the future speak poetry
Journal thoughts and metered verse
Now God is Companion most trustworthy

The cardinal to the wind speaks red and song
Bright flash of color, sweet call in the tree
Now God is Beauty most delicate

The breath to the body speaks wisdom
Cadence, rhythm, surety
Now God is Life most fundamental

The Sacraments to the Church speak ritual
Bread, juice, water
Now God is Presence most real

You and I to each other speak theology
Big words, important thoughts
Still God is just beyond our pen and ink…
