The Clearance Rack

My heart stirred
I found God in the clearance rack last night
among the discards, the rejects from last season
50% off - God was there
In between the blouses too large for me, the knit tops too tight

I looked up - could this be true?
Is God right here among the markdowns?
I looked around.

God, are you out there?
in flannels and linens
lingere and sleepware
Mens, Juniors, Boys and Girls
God, are you out there?

I returned to my rack
God is here
Packed between the unclaimed knits
Among the lost, the silent and the forgotten
God is here
radiant in my heart
God is here

Christine...Hi and

Christine...Hi and welcome...your poem resonates with me on a few levels...i love your expressiveness...the looking upon and thinking upon the love everywhere around, that we in our busyness so often perhaps pass by...and the fact that God doesn't discriminate or elimate, putting on some shelf far, far, away, in any way at all...and that Love is Within...some really good, great, creative love...mike:)
