God's brush

God’s brush                                                                                              

Dinosaur bones found today in Texas
proof of time from earth’s dawning;

physical evidence like the morning’s
egg-stained dishes and a half cup of cold coffee,

historical data corroborating
our perceptions and assumptions –

the past not only once existed
but time is ever flowing into it;

not a contiguous, static flickering 
in the same illogical, illusive now.

Do the bones prove our temporality
or is it just another flourish from God’s brush?

Another facet of His ever-present, insoluble,
impossibly intricate and arcane, illusory design?

O child of God, is time endless or an infinitesimal
slice of the wink of an eye?
