Can You Find God in Your Poetry? – a poem by Maribel C. Pagán

Can You Find God in Your Poetry?

Can you find God in your poetry?
Buried in the blade of your pen,
or in the skin of your soul?
In the sound of a whale,
or in the drop of a needle?

Can you hear the music
thrumming through your own?
Do you see the colors your eyes paint,
or the way you cry in the rain
when the clouds turn into broken songs?

Where do you see yourself in a year’s time?
Will your final words be encased in this poem,
in the wings you’ll need to find God?
Will your words weep when your breath dies?
Can you find God in this broken hymn, in this final prayer?

Can you find God in your poetry?
