Heavenly Bodies – a poem by Aviva Satz-Kojis

Heavenly Bodies

God is not real
or maybe he is
or maybe she is
or maybe
God is dead.

Perhaps
God is a baby
sick and frail
with an empty face
and a silent deafening mouth
begging,
asking,
needing.

God does not have eyes,
neither do the trees,
but God watches me
when I stare into the sun
and
grow roots in the mud
and
swim in the sky
God sees it all.

But the trees open their arms,
embrace me,
surround me in their omnipotence.
