Reaping February on a Snowy Evening

 

I’ve seen the face of God many times.

 

At first sight I fell victim to faith.

Love pooled in my palms as I gripped memory

confined in a silver locket. Yellow light crested

a high hill in a moment

of wise and silent patience.

I believed in simplicity.

 

Cynicism murders faith.

I felt my new soul itch to witness again,

but a different hill gifted clarity.

I remembered that I don’t believe.

 

And I drove home, craven:

a lonely agnostic

pretending.
