Surround

Sir Round,

I am writing to you

to ask for a continuance.

King Linear lords it over me.

 

Come thou now and help me with circles.

The ones I drew with eyes and a half circle

like a bowl facing the heavens.

Smiles drawn in the dirt.

 

The lines of men squarely turn oft times

at ninety degree angles.

3.14 sounds like a piece of pie

as the numbers spiral off into infinity.

 

Nights at the round table

asking questions which deflect off curves.

Job asked and God circled back in return:

Where were you when?

 

Sir Round,

Guide me again in what comes around.

Surround me in prayers which never end.

A diagram of a circle, with the width labeled as diameter, and the perimeter labeled as circumference

“It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth,” This is the only use of the word circle in the King James version of the Bible.

Read Isaiah 40:18-31 Lots of questions asked throughout. I am okay with the asking and am learning to ponder  the questions which circle back from God. There is a roundness of relationship which I often slice in two with only linear thinking. Jesus asked many questions in response to questions. The root word of questions is quest btw.

Care to discuss this? Drop a line.
