Look Up Today

9 Jul

“I can see how it might be possible for a man
to look down upon the earth and be
an atheist, but I cannot conceive
how a man could look up into
the heavens and say there is
no God.”
Abraham Lincoln

Look up sometime today.
Look above the noise and confusion
of life, beyond suffering that
refuses human reason,
above anger and malice
that defy common sense.

For this one day, raise your
eyes, your mind, your awareness
above headlines and
talking heads outshouting
each other.

Do not look down today
lest you miss Hope
skywriting images
and signs of
the possible.

Look up.
Raise your hands to heaven.
Shout.
