Dear God: A Letter & A Statement

My dear, my real,
Let’s make a deal 
Through breath or mind
Or two sharp eyes;
Through focusing on what’s at hand,
Or reasoning and analyzing,
Letting revelations stand,
Not hanging on:
One can get so gosh darn fixated.

I’m advised by wiser folk to not take notes but trust 
In synapses, whose thrust 
Stands for the aspects
Of the universe’s map.

My latest vision, guide and template,
Is neutron, as is sun;
Countless, endless miles from one,
Passing rays through galaxies,
Powers of which we’ve not an inkling,
Clinging to a nothing, 
Influencing armies,
Countries, species, certainties;
Yes, powers that we take for granted:
Image result for neutron paintings
Neutron Star -- Chris Walker
