I Had A Feeling About The Stars

I had a feeling about the stars
that maybe they could be
the outward shell of God

and he was speaking that way
in silver to us all and from distances
no longer calculated by the radio astronomers.

and this is why we misunderstood
and he was weeping in pearl aureoles
above the quiet snows inconsolably,

beyond His incontrovertible Will
because we did not know Him, still.
