Scripture Lesson

Here are lies--
I stole from the groom,
Then gave to the bride;
I went to her room
And locked myself inside.

Here is nonsense--
God is a woman
Who lives in outer space;
And when she cries, it snows
Little lace-drops from her face.

Here is truth--
A bouquet is on the sill,
And a garter on the bed;
The wolves live in the snowy woods,
Her tracks lead there instead.

Good one, Shay. I love the footsteps leading to the wolves. And the little lace drops when God cries. You have such a gift!!!!!!!

thank you for a post that for the first time for me didn't take all night to piece it together right so that it made the most sense to someone a tad off kilter.

"And when she cries, it snows
Little lace-drops from her face." Your imagery is always stellar, Shay.

God is a woman
Who lives in outer space;
And when she cries, it snows
Little lace-drops from her face.

I'll go with that!
