Back to Hymns and Prayers to the God.


In a forest of rich greens,
I walked among the undergrowths
To bend down and touch your feet there,
But what I found
Were flowers of every color.

On a busy city sidewalk,
I moved among the hurrying crowds
To listen for your voice there,
But what I found
Were buskers, daring to make their dreams real.

While visiting in a hospital,
I walked through the corridors
To watch for your hands there,
But what I found
Were human beings, struggling for wholeness.

On an open country road,
I walked toward the sun
To look for your face there,
But what I found
Was light, too intense for me to receive.

Apollo, you are too large
To be found in this world.
Too large.
