STEP OUTSIDE June 26, 2011

Posted by brownsweaters in poetry.

Perhaps the Cosmonauts were trying to be funny

Circling the earth, floating through outer space.

Where is god? they asked.  We do not see a god.


And spontaneously across America the answer rose,

Step outside your capsule, then you’ll see god.

Outside. God is there waiting for you.


Oh how we laughed at the cleverness of our thoughts and

righteously felt having put the non believers in their place

and no doubt envisioned the scowl on their faces as they

heard our undeniable response –

yet the one Cosmonaut smiled,

understanding the eternal and the infinite,


And hesitated at the door.
