When I was a boy,
god was a bearded old man,
an un-come-at-able father keeping a
list of naughty and nice.

In my prodigal youth,
god was a submissive son,
who chose obedience over individuation,
born again over grown up.

When I grew up,
god became a long-legged goddess,
breathlessly beautiful and
mellifluously mine on moon-lit nights.

After the war,
god was a grim reaper,
bleeding my world of art, leaves
and common sense.

Now,
with the years piled up like pages in a book,
god is a mother
birthing and nursing our times together
and apart.

Only she knows,
when the time comes to say goodbye,
what separation we are meant to bearů

You reminded me of the words of Pope John Paul I, who dared to say God could be seen as a Mother. I agree!

I appreciate your words, well done.

Love,
Margherita
