Semantics

How do we talk about
God?

(Some have already left the room.)

What is Gitchi Manitou?
Who is Allah?
or Elohim, Brahma, Odin?

Divine,
The One,
Source,
Great Mystery,
and all those other
Words

Are about what can be experienced
not described
nor adequately named.

And if you try,
I will just look at you
and softly say, “I know”.

Conversations about this
get very short.
