When God Cries

When God cries

his tears gently touching

 the ailing, flailing earth

scintillating stardust falls

to the wintered ground below

twinkling diamond-lets

 tinkling the ground

tingling the ears

with a crinkling sound

sparkling the trees

in light bright white

blanching our sins

reaching out to us by

transforming our eyes

 with a bejeweled sight.

    • Thank you, Bert. God is crying a lot right now in New York City. And with good reason.

  4. Universe is everywhere, hence no center to point, or direction to send our thoughts of despair. I have noticed that It listens to the deepest cries of our soul. It teaches us how to find our own food, but only seldom feeds us freely.

    • this comment is destined to prayer of despair (made a mistake — concentration low)

    I don’t relate to the word ‘sin’, it’s too catholic. Sin, in its archaic meaning means: to be off target. [a hunting analogy, which I don’t like, however, much less offensive than the catholic sin thing].

    • Sorry you find the word “sin” offensive. I am writing from my experience being brought up Catholic and Protestant. I still believe in sin although I think of it differently than in the Catholic sense. Thank you for your comment. Our differences add interest.

        I don’t find the word offensive, it’s just a word that I can’t relate to. Sin, in its archaic meaning, is more compassionate because if one is ‘off target’ or ‘off the mark’ they can adjust their behavior. Whereas, “sin” in the catholic terminology, is riddled with guilt and shame.
        Not that some actions are not worthy of guilt and shame, however, many just need better direction.
