Did We Play Hide And Seek With God

did we play hide and seek with God
in the long blue twilights
there where the stars fell

into the night grasses
and not the dew as we had thought.
there we were promised three wishes

three wishes and more.
is it vain to store those half lights
jewel toned though they were

to rummage in boxes tied with a silver string?
this close to Christmas,
I don't know.

I won't be held to account.
but I have seen His shadow on the grass
and felt the tremor in the stars.

and something mysterious, come to pass...
