NOTES TO GOD

You guide the
Pencil from
My teeth

As I write
Words –

Touching You.

You spin
Me dizzy
Never lost
But always

Present.

You are so
Close to me
And micromanage

My happy soul

With alluring
Fumigation,
Exorcism

And rehabilitation

That is never harsh
But peace-loving.

As I seek You
With words

And furiously
Dancing

Question marks

You look
Into my
Mind

And burn it

With cool
Loving flames

Like rushing
Waters
Of new hypnosis.

As I write / pray
You allow me
To fly

Over
Steep hills,

Feeling like
A life-affirming
Turing machine

While my
Tears freeze
Into wise spectacles

That cause me
To see

The dazzling
Emptiness

Of my world
Without You,

But You
Never leave me,

And I feel
Your presence
In loving

Morning quietness

And in night
Sky

As you
Break the moon
Into pieces

And offer
Me mystical
Night vision

When I say
“Yes.”

You touch me
Filling the
Universe

In me.

As I
Write
And dialogue

With You,

I become
Borderless.
