God is a Metaphor ... With All Due Respect

God is a Metaphor ... With All Due Respect

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Image result for ethereal
God is a Metaphor
erupting with fingering phrases
glissando winds ripple limbs
frisson rises in all those places
dawn's sun breaks and swims 

how can i think what God is?

newly fallen snow, fresh kill 
heat steams wavering over
shaded rooms like  a poet's quill
enlighten corners like no other


how can i say who God is?


tuck and rolled white-red leather
the clouds lay cotton in the valleys and
in a faceless place the eyes are a trema
prickly pare cactus bleeds bended knees


how can i see where God is?


immovable and curdled milk senses
mixed in whiskeyrum tumblers 
ice hiccup clinking glass  ..... a 
frenetic lens
 ....and
stippled integrity ...and 
icy fingers probing the most difficult; 
forcing open brittle parchment
peering
loving parts i will not admit

God is a metaphor
With all due respect

Beautiful deep dive of introspection, thoughts and words here E. "God is a Metaphor...With All Due Respect"- a knockout of a title! Exquisite language and great form with questions asked and answered-or not really... Maybe we are all metaphors. Loved this provocative poem E. Happy 2020!

Although I believe in God, this was truly something else. You have this ability to just project imagery beyond my imagination.

sometimes when we look at poetry, some of my students believe that the metaphor is actually the real thing---

well ...........it is isn't it??? :))))))))))))))))))))))))
E.
there is beauty, there is ugly, there is nature, there is man-made....but who gave us all that we see and as humans think...feel...wonder...and is God in that parchment, is God behind the words we write...
as Joan Osborne sang.."what if God was one of us, just a slob like one of us?"
maybe just walking among us and watching how we react to all that is there...whether he or she is behind it or what...
much posed here....much to ponder...makes us stop and question exactly what our beliefs are at this point in our lives, considering all some of us have lived through.
great poem...maybe life is just a hiccup...seems that short sometimes...that random.

Very interesting write here, E. So you are of the opinion that G-d is everywhere and has created everything. Not sure I really believe. I am rather agnostic myself. Thought provoking lines in this one, E....I loved the thought of ice hiccuping! :) Unique and well written. Lydi***
