God of the Sparrows

April 3, 2015

And there’s this guy called Daniel Imburgia, who, I just learned, is not just a fine artist and all round genius, he also writes great poetry… particularly for theologians. Here’s his recent offering on Fb for the season… obliged.

From, “God of the Sparrows #7”

 

And so we fall

But the god of the sparrows

Falls with us

 

Falling first before

Gravity

Or its theory

 

Falling with us

Not in our stead

 

Some might have

Thought ‘jumped!’

Others ‘pushed’

 

Regardless

We crash and shard

God, sparrow, and me

A mashup of smithereens

 

Dare we hope

Smithereens

Fly

 

– Dan Imburgia
