My God is Love
I sit today with more questions than answers;
rich in potential revelations
An Indian guru this week said with reverence
“God is really feminine in energy
as She creates, giving birth all of the time.”
I wonder, why then, are women diminished
hated, brutalized, used throughout the world I occupy.
Is it a statement really toward God and potency, not women?
I pick up a book by Alice Walker
Anything We Love Can Be Saved, its title.
I decide I will love all that is feminine, masculine, and alive.
My world will change.
My God will be Love.
I change the tense to the present.
My God is Love.
I have a new prayer.
