Drag Queen God

 


This morning, through the autumn mist

I glimpsed God

Her auburn hair swirled around her

Her long purple boots tramped determinedly

through a carpet of autumn leaves

And her train trailed behind her

swirling up a rainbow

of red and gold and green and brown

The leaves were swept up

and deposited

in her wake

Indiscriminately

None left untouched

but all finding a new place to settle

and continue their work

of nourishing the earth

while God walked purposefully on

like a drag queen on the cat walk

displacing everything in her path

Disturbing

Repurposing

Grounding

Sanctifying

Autumnal God

I looked at 2007 first and Doughnuts
then flew through time and space to
the "encounter in the park"..
Quite a journey ...
