Poem: God Talked



Reflecting upon how a successful and happy long-term relationship began.

***

God Talked


Fifteen we met
He loved poetry
To Taiwan he mailed
Reams of copied poems
From the school library he found

Eight thousand miles
They traveled to cheer
Proclaiming love he could not write
Three years he wooed
Til Louisiana college did unite

God stepped out of time’s midst,
Proclaimed, He’s yours to marry
Fine with me, I grinned agreed

Long pause of wondering

And then

Tapped God on the shoulder

Excuse me, God,
But have you told him yet?
