The Face of God

I saw it when
the Moon
kissed the Sun.

The two fell silent,
devoted to each other
in divine bliss.

And the Earth
grew cool and dark,
as if praying in a holy room.

And I, I saw the Face of God -
glorified and dignified,
adorned within a halo
as the stars genuflected across the sky,
one by one passing through this sacred veil.

Conflicts stopped.
Civilizations quieted.
Bird and beast grew still.
And for a few moments, all were forgiven.

It had to be the Face of God -
nothing else could hold so much love.

I thoroughly enjoyed this poem. I am not a religious person, but I envy those that find peace and hope within there beliefs and I certainly felt and share your hope.

Thank you for sharing the poem and a piece of your soul.

Very nice. - Will

Through the years, my spiritualism has evolved and changed and the understanding of God has taken on a very unique, personal meaning and feeling for me. The solar eclipse truly choked me up... So superior and amazingly extraordinary. A very sacred experience!
Thank you so much for reading! I appreciate your comments!
