The God I Follow

The God I follow
is the breastbone of all beginnings,
the gallop in the manned animal,
the grief that murders any half-measures,
and lifts the eyes to meet the sun.
The God I love is love
unexplained, strange as the depths
of the oceans and strong as gravity.
This love swims through chimneys and air vents,
cloaks the guilty and the saved, is reborn
in every merciful eye.
The God I follow is forgiveness,
blind to all but the true measures of the heart,
is the Christ-arrow that weeps with the hungry
and bends to the burn of divine surrender.
The God I love is personal as the body,
is a lifetime pasture of rich anguish
and gentle revelations.
