Living Word in a Living World

© Matthew Word Bain

as surely as
the microwave radiation
received by the grey dish above
is traveling through space
and just as invisibly to
modern eyes
the Earth is alive
beneath this building
and is present in the block
that make up its walls

even when She is buried
beneath asphalt and concrete
and hidden from the Sky
there is no escaping Her
though attention may
wander from Her
to the page
and to the screen
the human psyche itself
has arisen within Her and
can only perceive what is real
and what is right in relationship
with She who gives it life
