i apologized because God was silent;

though we called His name,
His voice did not ring from the Heavens
or even tremble in the oil puddles
already quivering at our feet;

His hand did not descend to guide us
and you could never feel His love
when i promised it was there;

"is faith stupidity?" you asked me,
dragging a stick through one dark smear,
rainbows shifting on its surface;

gray clouds shifted;
opalescence bleared;

i apologized because God was silent.

Why should God have to speak when he has created such elegance in the form of you?

I am an atheist. One that finds faith both courageous and admirable. You do not sound stupid and you don't sound naive. You sound comforting.

It's the tone of this poem I love the most. A poem with open arms that doesn't ask questions and doesn't shy away from the blame if there is any to be had. And most of all, there is not an ounce of hostility. The speaker doesn't sound angry or upset or like anything but someone who wants to make the pain go away for another person. It's true, I guess: sometimes it's about what you don't see that makes the difference.

It was lovely and lilting. Thank you.

In my experience, a person can't truly get a poem unless the poet clears a precise and eloquent path. Let's both give ourselves pats on the back and call it an excellent day.
