God Is Present

It’s In Silence I Remember
"Invoked or not, God is present."
C.G. Jung

In the silence of my heart
I remember – God is present
wrapped in the whirl –
a stop sign at the corner, a plastic bag
tumbling down the street.
In all this – invoked or not,
present –  in the old  man
spinning up the hill
in his electric wheelchair,
in headlines and news bites
and hawthorn blossoms that herald Spring.
Invoked or not –
Mozart on the car radio, purse
calendar, books as passengers
on the seat next to me.
God is present and
that is sufficient for life.

Thank you, Harry, for sharing this. It resonates deeply.
