God came to visit today. Took his skin off, changed his skeleton into a galaxy. Dressed himself in mists adorned himself with finches and stars, and joined me for a latte. Neither of us spoke much. What we shared was simple: A longing, a joy, a vulnerability perched on the edge of life surrounded by the eternal abyss.
