Brevity

God speaks in haiku.

So short I almost missed

it.  A single Word.

 

 

Sometimes God speaks with elegant simplicity

A frustratingly uncomplicated “yes”

In the midst of knowing “no”

 

Sometimes eternal word

Spoken briefly

Once in a span of ten thousand years

Feels far too abrupt

For any caring Father

 

Elsewhen we pause to marvel at the abundance

Of words spilling forth

In the poetry of creation

breathing syllables that caress our blood

with every failing carbon

 

Are these word beloved

Are they from my beloved

Breathed over the face of the deep

[Lucas Mix 6/20/2012]

  1. Lovely poetry….reveals thoughtful contemplation on ways our Father speaks to us. Your words are obviously from the heart of one who has heard his father speak to him in numerous ways.
    Thank you, from one who never ceases to thrill at words from my loving God.
