Some Say that God

By Jane Tawel

January 2, 2022


Some say that G-d is darkness,

the mystery of night,

Some say man can not look at G-d,

for He is blinding light.

But maybe Moses on the mount,

when in the Holy Presence,

there had to shut his eyes so tight,

against the bright and Holy Light,

that it seemed that his eyes saw night,

yet, afterwards, his face shone bright,

and that was G-d’s true essence.


Some say that God is in us,

a Holy Spirit living.

While some say God’s in Heaven above,

and to us, earth is given.

But maybe Jesus, while on earth

knew best God’s real abode;

and that while God does reign above,

He also lives in truth and love,

in all who seek and find rebirth.


Some say that God….

Some say that….

Some say……

Well, I have found the more I know,

the less that I can speak.

For as I seek

I find my peace,

not in a notion or in words,

but in the motion of the world,

that some Great Giver holds, and stays,

and asks me to embrace this day,

and lives in me to do my part,

of letting light and letting dark,

and letting truth and letting love,

and all things real, here and above,

grow seeds of Life within my heart.

Still not old enough to know better. I root around and explore ideas in philosophy, spirituality, poetry, Judeo-Christian Worldview, family, relationships, and art. Often torn between encouragement & self-directed chastisement, I may sputter, but I still keep trying to move forward.

  1. born we were til
    the point of where the husk of what was us
    infer this
    is above
    but natural laws cannot be denied
    and the decrial
    of the continued denuding and pollution of mother earth
    the land of our birth
    natal fatal
    cradle to grave
    our goal
    the immortal soul to save!


  2. The more I know the less I speak…For as I speak I find my peace…in the motion of the world. He lives in truth and love. Jane, you’re such a gifted writer with a beautiful soul. I love your perspectives on God, life, love, and peace. Much peace and love to you my friend!
