God's Word

Here's a poem I wrote on April 24, 1978. It's one of those papers I've been lugging around for over thirty years, thinking that someday I would do something with it. Well, I finally got around to it. I reworked it a bit today and believe it's ready to be published. It worked out so that each of the five verses has exactly sixteen syllables. See if you can figure out what I'm talking about in each verse. To how much of the Bible's story does the poem allude?


God's Word

God’s Word,
In the beginning,
Called forth light,
And life,
And existence.

God’s Word,
Fingered in stone,
Timeless code,
Spells out love,
And bares the soul.

God’s Word,
Becoming flesh,
Walking with men,
Living love,
Paid the price.

God’s Word,
Leather-bound,
Lamp and sword,
Nourishing the soul,
Arms the fight.

God’s Word,
In my heart,
Holy flame,
Kindles love,
And radiates life.
