The Monkey Sees God in Bananas

The monkey sees God in bananas

The tiger sees the divine in his claws

The crow sees God in the worms of the morning

As he cackles, preens, and craws

Man sees God in the unseen

The preacher sees the divine in his words

The zealot sees it in the crowds that gather before him

As he guides them like an unthinking herd

Let your eyes be your faith and your heart

Let your ears hear the sounds of the divine

Let your own steps guide you to your version of God

As I shall let my feet lead me to mine

Monkey

The Sprawl

When God looked outside himself

He did not see love hate

Water fire sulfur salt

He saw possibility

In all its infinite glory

Devil In The Details

The devil is in the details

Yet God is found in the mistake

And the best laid plans of man pales

To when evolution and conditions awake
