Today I saw a leaf suspended in midair.
It had fallen off the tree,
Yet it never hit the ground.
You say "how can that be?
That defies the law of gravity.
What is this nonsense you expect me to believe?"
You misunderstand: it wasn't just floating there,
Though from afar it would appear to be.
An invisible thread held this brown leaf.
You say "how convenient- an imaginary thread.
Something no one can see to prove or disprove.
A unicorn-like mythical fantasy."
No, nothing like that: it was a spider's web.
Even you have felt it's sticky substance.
Even you have seen it gleam in the sunlight.
But even if you hadn't seen or felt it,
It wouldn't mean it wasn't there
Keeping that leaf hanging in midair.
This is how the invisible God upholds me,
Though it would seem an impossibility.
Blessed are those who don't have to see to believe.
