search party

every moment spent searching
gravel unusual little details
door ajar
hat pin on top of blank paper

counting things
changes in size and color
empty slot for an egg
words in their places

searching the cloudless distant sky
cat asleep on my pillow

looking for God in meaningless details
finding Him in my heart

I nearly missed this, the struggles of life reaching out for faith

Thanks Sue! I'm one of those people who sees patterns everywhere and looks for meaning in every little mundane thing. You also see unusual possibilities everywhere. I have seen it in your poems!
