Ordinary Divinity

A Poem By Raine // 11/26/2014

the truth of this one life
held for a moment in
the sound of waves
tapping the shore
and the rustling grass
the spiral shape
of a snails home
and even the sand
between your toes.

it's all that holds us
together--the fragility
of this life is held
by the certainty of
not knowing everything
and the wonder of
knowing nothing.

and somewhere in
the sound of birds
in the trees and the hum
of passing traffic
there is inescapable
divinity.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬

"Reason itself is a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all." - G. K. Chesterton
