The Circus and God's Creation

When you clown and mimic their foibles and blunders

do you realize you are getting your audience to laugh at themselves?

I wish I could get them to do that.

A sense of humour is so healthy and humility so holy.

Animals do seemingly impossible things for animals to do.

Performers do seemingly impossible things for humans to do.

They perform “divinely” we say.

Like me, the Master of the Impossible.

Long ago I planned all this so my children would not lose

their sense of creation

of sacrifice and self-forgetfulness

of yearning for the divine

of awe and wonder

and laughter and love

Do you not realize it’s so?

Do you not realize how the circus speaks of God?

I who cross deserts and mountains to come to you.

I who am on the road with you.

Do you not realize it’s so?

Do you not realize how the circus speaks of God?

I who am Awe and Wonder

and Laughter

and Love.
