Before sleep had left bones
with dreams still whispering,
as fleeting as the sunrise,
for one short ray of understanding — God!
Without need for scripture or sacrifice,
tithe, temple or testament.
No spokesperson or man behind a curtain
pulling levers of smoke and smite — God!
Not all-knowing, all-powerful,
no rules and regulations in 6-point type.
Just you and me and our daily bread:
how we love one another — God!
