Religious Charades





Hints and mimes
and grand gestures
that hide
as much as they reveal.
Misunderstandings,
where laughter peals
in the place of empathy
and conclusions are reached
by impossible leaps
and shaky surmises.
These are the games we play
to take away
the apparition of the abyss
when all the while,
it doesn’t exist...
No need for charades
when Logos,
The Word,
Divinity’s Soul,
Is in all and through all
and makes us -
daily,
eternally -
all together
whole.

Painting and poem by Ruth Calder Murphy
