An evening community meal in our poetry cycle we explored our hopes in God through poetry. Conversations were shared, and the output ranged from beautiful to barmy!

If God is Love then maybe...we could have a Magnum every day with no concern for over consumption or weight gain they would creep up the night like Father Christmas, open the freezer door and snick-in, like children to bed. Waiting expectantly for the next day, when they meet their destiny.
If God is Love then maybe...children will grow to their full potential, fully responsible; fully imaginative, creativity in uniqueness; breaking the rules, respecting no limits to being creative in community; it's all prayer.
If God is Love then maybe...we know love, too. An inheritance webbed in forgotten value, re-awakened; daring and daunting.
If God is Love then maybe...the loving will see God will gaze into the warm light with whole reassurance that they were right; love was right more absolute than gravity or speed of light. love was right love is right relief, fear of absence no more the darkness put out with their tiny strong light.
If God is Love then maybe...wars can be left on hold; we can listen to greensleeves while waiting for the operator to declare harmony down the windy clockwork phone war is so over, war is so last year tweet it, tweet it big: God love is.
