God & I


God and I have been friends

a long time. I was born

to strife, survived temptation,

hauled my cross to Calgary

and swung there like a thief.


God and I have much in common

as Christ, walking was the best way

to get the word out. Pilot was

my enemy, Herod my nemisis.

There have been deciples

and many Marys along

the way.


With most of my life spent

like so many dimes gleaned

from deposited pop bottles,

I talk to God like an old

chum and if I am to see

the "face" of God in time,

then having practiced

the ways of The Word so long

will have been spiritually worth

the reading and the doing.
