This piece was inspired by a poem I wrote shortly after my daughter was born, with a title inspired by the John Steinbeck book of the same name.
To a God Unknown
I felt you in the crisp morning light
And your hand on mine the night Oli died
And you stirred all the oceans within
when everything else ran dry
And I see it in the stars and in the webs the spiders weave, the worlds that the artist’s brush conceive and the songs that raise the hairs from my skin when the heart has succumbed to the mind
The poets always described you better than the priest, the man of nature knew your patterns better than he
Yet they still speak your name and describe your ways, giving words to the mysteries that will always remain and pretending to know your divine will and imagining they’d understand the ineffable
The sun rose on me again and 34 years in the awe still remains, I thank God and yet beyond a name, you’re still a stranger to me in the dark
But the goldfinches were on the thistles in this morning mist, and I wondered what I’d done to deserve all this, as Dolores slept upon my chest I found Eden in those trusting arms
So if I’m Cain’s son and the descendent of sin, and the serpent still lives just beneath my skin then why do you bless me with such crushing bliss when I present you my meagre yield
I tried to find you in the holy scriptures and books but found only signposts and half-heard whispered words but you were there as a still, small voice amongst the blessed branches of pine
And you were there when hope fell from my eye, and there when suffering filled my mind and you lifted the veil just long enough to bring light to a darkened sky
To a God unknown, I feel your grace, in the forests and in my daughter’s face, and I sacrifice and carry my weight in the hope that I’ve earned my part
So I tread on your soil with a softness of touch and try to add only kindness and love, hoping that although not much, my presence brought more grace than pain
