One More Time

I see God

in the spilled colors of another autumn sunset

and the bewildering greatness

of far-flung galaxies 

and in newborns greeting the world

for the first time.


And I see God

in the crest-fallen eyes of a man bent low,

disoriented by addiction and shame,

who still believes his life 

is worth the risk of 

trying one more time.
