The Face of God
By Priscilla Goka


The reddish hues of a sunset sky,
fills the world to a golden blaze,
I look upon it,

Two eyes, a nose and lips of wispy white clouds.
Is that, the face of God gazing back at me?
Have I done right or am I doing wrong?
I really do not know,
I do the best I can.

Looking at that face above, I wish it could tell me, truly,
If that is the face of God,
If that is the gaze of God,
Or if it is just what I see it to be,

Wispy white clouds in the sunset sky,
Red as blood,
Passing to give way to the darkness of night.
