Eyes divine

Eyes divine                                                                                                         

We are all looking through God’s eyes
which is to say God is looking through our eyes

if only we could climb back
into our original face before it became

encrusted with the journey’s dust.
Everyone we meet is just Who we are

under the dust-caked makeup – spooked ghosts
treading the boards rather valiantly in our assigned roles,

looking up rarely from the issued script,
too obliged, too immersed, too stage-frightened

to look beyond each clay facade or within our own;
nor project ahead to the God-directed,

neatly-tied plot resolutions
and the deep, heavy curtains sliding closed.

O child of God, o stage-struck one, imagine that!
You are destined to see your Self.
