God Alone

God Alone

In a world
in a time
in a period
of the age
when all are too busy
making noise
for themselves
to listen
to their God
who whispers
beneath the pulse
underneath the artery
below the systol-diastol
in the darkness of their heart,

do not expect
that anybody
should think you
to have so much dignity
as for any
to listen to,
either.

He knows this
and you know this,
this kind of dark,
and so, as He finds you,
alone, as He is God alone,
He draws you near,
conformed and knowing Him,
alone and alike,
He ignites the flame–
shows it is Him
whispering
in the darkness
beneath the pulse
underneath the artery
below the systol-diastol
of a ‘love-love’, ‘love-love’
calling you to His heart.
