Gd is Simple

They say we cannot see the divine

Hidden beyond humanity’s grasp,

As our understanding is weak

And our imaginations shallow


But in your face I see Gd;

The brilliance of creation,

The joy of life


In your embrace I feel Gd’s love;

The comfort of security,

The peace of belonging


Gd is not hidden

Nor clouded in mystery.

Gd is the connection between

Where we meet with each other.


Gd is visible at every moment

In the wonder of nature,

The magic of the seasons,

And our dependence upon the earth.


Understanding Gd is as simple

As opening one’s eyes

And in loving another.
