What Kind of God?

Coastal Daisy by Earth Gypsy
What kind of God would He be
if He did not hear the
bangles ring on
an ant’s wrist
as they move the earth
in their sweet

And what kind of God would He be
if a leaf’s prayer was not as precious to Creation
as the prayer His own son sang
from the glorious depth
of his soul—for us.

And what kind of God would He be
if the vote of millions in this world could sway
Him to change the Divine law of
love that speaks so clearly with compassion’s elegant tongue,
saying, eternally saying:

“All are forgiven—
moreover, dears,
no one
has ever been guilty”

What kind of God would He be
if He did not count the blinks
of your eyes
and is in absolute awe of their movements?

What a God—
what a God we

—-St. Catherine of Siena
