Met God Again Today

Met God again today

Met God again today
winter in Alaska,
he stood on a corner
was led to him in every way
this is a corner
passed every time
we are on that side of town
many stand on this corner
asking for help
sometimes stopping
passing them something to eat
or drink

This time right before was reminded
stopped and asked how we could help
he stated he had “..lost our house in a fire, we just paid it off, no insurance..”
somehow, there was no doubt
could see the sadness in his eyes
losing everything he had in mind
retired, finally “made it” and now this
memory items gone, stripped of them all
it did not seem fair, not one bit

he said “..my wife sits in our new apartment,
we have a warm place now, thank goodness,
but nothing within we lost everything.”
that day I did not have any way
to give him something,
no currency, no food within the truck
so I told him,
“We will gather something and get back with you.”

two weeks passed,
he crossed my mind twice
had not been to town since that last time
last night as I went to that same store
to buy a few things and a touch more
crossed that same corner
the one where he stood
and recalled that gentleman,
soul spoke up and said, “Get a gift card to him.”
okay, thought yes, and then saw him standing there
so I did, while in the checkout
my heart is excited once again, just thinking it about
left the building and went to the truck
noticed he was gone.
What?! Heard soul state, “Tomorrow-Trust”

That night,
J was practicing in his garden for dreaming
he was nervous about zombies again
as he explored and discovered he stopped in a whisper,
“Mom, there is an old man on the edge of the pond, he is homeless.”
“He is skinny, a long beard and glasses, cold and hungry, I gave him some money.”
“Mom, he said, ‘God bless you, I cannot believe that just happened.’ ”
“He has such joy in his eyes, and he was so grateful.”

Today, at about the same spot
the corner right before him
was reminded of all of this
especially that card
it sat in my purse forgotten,
sitting there waiting for
this moment to come about

told J about the gift card
reminded him of when
we spoke with him the first time
and how I had seen this man
on the corner once again

told him “When I came out he was gone
so if he is there today we can give the card to him
since you saw what you saw in your dream
maybe you could give it to him, thinking, Naturally!”

J felt uncomfortable
too soon at his age
understood, still, he was in a panic
not sure why I could not gauge
as we rounded the corner
witnessed another stopping to run over to him
handing him something
“See, others are helping too.”

Pulled up to that corner
and met his eyes
so soft and blue
so Nothing to hide, true

he was real
and himself
and in pain no doubt
standing in the cold
feeling sad about his ending
he had glasses over his soft blue eyes, a medium white beard
dressed well enough to be warm at least
handed him the card, his eyes fixed back to mine
he was so grateful
All that was Divine!

Removing his gloves
he said, “God bless you.”
as he cradled my hand
the most gentle touch I have ever felt
it felt Godly, like nothing else

once again I caught his gaze
you know what I heard, in that silent moment after
“I cannot believe that just happened.”
That did not come from me
it came from forward, where he stood
heard nothing more
of all the times handing things
this was like no other.

I know in my heart of hearts
I met God again today
God, the Divine, the Ultimate Life Force Energy
Is within all of us
each person you pass each and every day
this is why so many say,
and I fully agree
treat Everyone as yourself
and you will live blessed, naturally.
