    God's Fingerprint

    On the Sistine, Michaelangelo painted God's fingered thrust giving with Love the gift of Life to Man fresh from dust. First breath, beneath the Heavens ! Second breath, on land and sea ! From then 'til now, a thrusted finger sculpts his Destiny.

    Not long ago, Instinct was his primal need and guide when smells repelled, fires frightened and lightning made him hide
    and stars up in the Heaven were just punctures in the night while reflections in the water were the ghosts he could not fight.

    Then Lightning struck and all beasts ran. He made a mental leap to stand his ground in Thunder's roar, a choice to "not" retreat.
    And Nature merged with Instinct to define Creation's goal from God's thrusted fingerprint now stamped upon his Soul.

    And if Time's compressed into a day for beasts for Man and flowers, then Life with many a cell showed up in just the last twelve hours. And Dinosaurs walked on Earth last hour ! Pre-Man, a minute or so ! Modern Man, you and I only just got here less than a second ago.

    Still time to learn from Wisdom ! Still time to shed the Fears of pain and War mourned by moms who've cried a billion tears.
    Embrace the Life that's precious. Be proud you're Man from dust and fashioned by the hand of God in a single fingered thrust !

    Reverend baller – So glad to have you here at the congregation this morning. Looks like we got a full house and our words today will indeed be a reflection of Him who sent us here. His fingerprint is on everything and everyone. Let the house say…AMEN indeed. Thanks Rev for the uplift. HH

    1poetsought – The magic of Houdini’s escapes had the public enthralled and holding its breath. You can even say that Harry was in his way the original ‘Poet of Escape’. I’m one Harry who escapes into poetry with the intent that maybe I’ll find or create some magic there. Your words have put a big smile on this old poet today and on Houdini’s face just making its magical escape from the lips would be a big smile too. Thanks for your words 1poetsought. HH

    Rich – It’s a thrill anytime a poet’s created work stamps a foot and makes an imprint on a kindred poet. The inspiration for this work came from watching a movie, The Agony and the Ecstasy. Strange how sometimes the most remote people, places, things and events spark the creativity. Thanks Rich for making an imprint on this poet today. It’s enough to spread the word. HH
