|Rainbow over the Hauraki Gulf by Tomwsulcer and Haley Sulcer|
Long time past I believed God was a joke
community played on innocent by-
standers—a “Look Up!” game that we joined so
no one would know we had been taken in.
I was entranced by images of God
but more so by coincidence and land-
and city-scapes that draped me with their moods:
invisible presences whispering.
“I am; we are” breathed God repeatedly
until I heard the unambiguous
of now upheld by past and leading on.
I am not joking when I say that thirst
led me past mirages to real water.
