Letter to God

Dear God,

It is twilight, that hour between dusk and dark

A transition for sun’s waning and moon’s resurgence

A stillness in the air, street lights turning on

Birds turning in, silent of their song

But we don’t always notice

Nestled am I as my day too ends
Today I read your letter…again.
Do you remember the times I would turn its pages
looking for something in it to make sense then

They told me it was written for me
While also for everyone else

I hated being so all alone
You stand in full exposure
I hated more being cloned
Which one is the worst phobia

There was no relevance in its histories
only confusion in its mysteries.

And then one day I asked how do I read this letter

I decided to talk to the author and now I see much better

When you heard my plea, you placed yourself in my heart
That’s when I saw you in your words you solemnly impart

So now, after all these years, I am writing my letter to you
Not to tell you what you don’t know
but to thank you for knowing it all
Unfolding and folding your words to me

Like you transition my mornings and evenings

I wonder if you will read this more than once

 

dVerse wants us to write a letter. Seems the oldest forms of poetry were in letter form. I didn’t know that. Sorry about the spacing. It messed up a bit.
3 things
Who am I writing to
Where I am writing from
What I want to tell them

 

 

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    Beautiful

    I was told there are two ways to read the Bible. One with a learned approach – knowing the symbolic meanings, history, context, etc. Then with the approach of a personal message just for me – to pray for a conversation. I like both approaches 🙂

    Beautiful! I love the progression of searching and finding and Living in the moment of grace give to all of us. The cloning was a really nice touch!

    Sometimes we need the “author” to bring clarity, but I think interpretation is not as important as what’s in our hearts.
