TITLE: Hide and Seek

This is written for God and for adult humans
From the recesses of the night sky,
Your voice teased my curiosity.
There, in the darkness, You flashed
a million light signals.
For years You summoned me, but resided
always out of reach.
My puny stature stretched for
Your tantalizing touch.

You played hide-and-seek with me.
You hid; I sought, overwrought with desperation,
but determined to find my own way through the
maze.
Over, under, in, through, around, about, but
always without success!

The You-yearning frustrated me so -
drove me into denser darkness, decades thick!
The sap sucked me in, sunk me to the bottom!
eventually viscosity solidified around my head.
I was trapped in a tomb of my own making.
There was no air down there; soon I knew I was
dead.

Until one day Your Spirit cracked
my mausoleum into concrete crumbs!
His voice whispered, “Acquiesce to my caress!
You know I died too – for you.
Let me lift you, hug you, kiss you,
bring you into life anew!”
My glued-shut eyelids unzipped to see
the crisp brilliance of Your Father’s smile
penetrating the gloom. I gasped His gentle,
perfumed breath
stepped out of death and consumed His gaze.

I still feel Your eyes warming,
melting the musty corners of my stony heart,
I’ve had a start. You’re molding me a heart of flesh,
as fresh as Your promise.

The seeker was found by the Hidden One!
