You Are God’s Poem (Leighton Ford)

This morning my Scripture reading included Ephesians 2:10 – that in Christ we are God’s “workmanship” – literally, God’s poem (Gk. poiema).
I was also reading in O’Donohue’s Beauty that a poet
wants to “write the poem that has not yet been written.”
And that a true poem “could not be other than it is.
 Its self and form are one.”
So I write this:
The Poem Not Yet Written
My painting coach Sally is also a poet.
She says she always begins with just one word.
So I will begin with just two words.
   “Not yet.”
But wait.
It is still being written.
Leighton Ford
