Cracks and Rough Edges

Only the stubbornly unaware
can retain the illusion
that a whole
and complete life
can be smooth and without
cracks and rough edges.

Searching for God

ipod pics 2015 324

Again today,
many leave their houses
in search of God.
Again, they bump into him,
trip over him, breathe him,
smell him, touch him,
yet look past him, unaware.
They return home saddened but
determined to resume their search
with the rising of the sun.
But tomorrow, perhaps, the scales
will fall from their eyes and
their day will be better spent
dancing and laughing
and joyfully blessing God.
