A Paper Theology

The stick man said there’s no pencil
He could not understand
For in his world thin as tinsel
He could not comprehend

Surely, if a pencil drew when e’re it moved around.
Its mark would draw clear lines through, without a break or bound.

In his world, a left and right scene
And up and down as well
No stick could sense the depth unseen
No out or in could tell

Sometimes, I think, I am he, drawn on that paper place
Contemplating the divine outside of time and space

Michael started writing poetry as a way to explore big ideas in faith and philosophy and as a way of tying creativity into these things. He works as a mental health professional helping people make sense of hard experiences. Metaphor and imagery are important and valuable tools in his work and are part of why poetry has resonated with his approach to big ideas.
