Divinity

              I imagine a god to be everywhere
        so churches are unnecessary

       I imagine Him absolutely sure of what’s best
                so prayer isn’t necessary

     I fancy then that if god there was, he’d be unknowable
                          so religion – every last one of ’em – is unnecessary

                   …and He’d know how to reach each heart
so clergymen would not be necessary

.still;  there are shorelines, mornings, full moons,
                flowers, birds and butterflies –
        or simple acts of human kindness –
  that make my divine fantasies a necessity …
             or to whom might I say Thank You ?
