They Asked If I Believed In God

Have you seen a flower?

Truly seen a flower?

If you’ve truly seen a flower

Then you know

That all of time

The entire universe

All of existence

The birth of stars

The spinning of planets

The death of creatures

And all that ever occurred

Was contained in a single seed

That sprouted and bloomed

So that you could see that flower

At that time

In that place

Only you

And, sometime, after that flower dies

It will take you

It will take the whole of the universe

All that was created in it

Along with it

That flower is god

And so are you
