GOD'S WILL
(4/22/06)


he said
that it was
a "God thing"
for him to be
in a particular place
at a particular time
enabling him
finally to be
of maximum
service
again

I bit
my tongue
for he was reborn
and I didn't want
to shoot down
his high
but the smile
stretched on my face
wore thin
as I nodded
my head
and told him
how fortunate indeed
he was to be
once more
on the
right
path

what
I didn't say
was that the action
picks the place
and time
for any
higher purpose
not
the other way
around
and if
nothing
is done
an infinite amount
of space and time
will never provide
a proper venue
for acts
of providence

I say
this now
as I sit
and ruminate
considering
my next
move
