God Speaks

I always thought God only spoke underneath a steeple,

Tears of saints, boasts of sinners, laughs of children,

Rainbows, hurricanes, sunsets and earthquakes,

God speaks to his people.

Thought there were designated deliverers of God’s word,

Scripture, history, her story and their story,

Movies, media, songs and sighs,

God speaks to his people.

Creeds, psalms and hymns, God’s approved message?

Dreams, glimpses, hopes and fears,

Murder and mayhem, redemption and salvation,

God speaks to his people.

Used to think that God only answered when we were praying,

Shouts of politicians, visions of elders, silence of monks,

Burning Buddha, crucified Christ, merciful Mohammed,

God speaks to his people.
