Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Dear God

You know the famous painting
on the ceiling of the Chapel
the one where your finger is
reaching to touch the finger
of a human
breaching the distance
stretching to love and remind
the earthbound you are
              the great I Am -
the curious one who cares?

today would be a good day
for a painting's idea to
translate into reality. I'm not asking
for a miracle or changes or a different
outcome to this nightmare. All I want
is a touch - the merest contact -
your fingertip to my fingertip. Will
your skin warm my frozen despair?
