I recently created a trio of visuals to accompany three poems reflected on at the recent Methodist Conference 2013.
These were also re-produced on handy bookmarks for future reference and reflection.
After the success of these, I was asked by Jo Kay to consider some of her poems and as a result I’ve produced the visual below, tom accompany Jo’s poem Multi-faceted God.
This is Jo’s poem:
Multi-faceted God, whose every myriad of surfaces
Reflect every tone and hue of colour
In the wonder of creation.
All the colours, shades and varieties
of the promised and longed for rainbow.
Whose face recognises mine in all this riot of colour.
Multi-lingual God, whose multiplicity of ears
Recognise every tone and timbre of tongue
Of all the wonderful nations.
All the rhythms, cadences and songs
Of the people of this Earth.
Whose ear hears my voice through the cacophony of sound.
Multi-purpose God, whose existence for me is my purpose;
Reflects for me the longings and desires
Of all created people.
All the needs, hopes and yearnings
Of believers young and old
Who brings purpose to my life in all its richness and diversity.
Multi-sensory God, whose every sense is finely tuned
Mirroring those we have in the world.
A sense of smell and sense of wonder
All the taste and sight and awe
That we share with the Holy Mystery
The God who senses every person, knows their minds, hearts and voices.
Multi-focused God, whose every facet is focused on me and you
Amazing God who looks on everyone
Looks with every atom of being and existence
On every person in creation
Concentrates on only me and only you and you
And you and you and you
This Holy Mystery who encompasses all and holds us for all time.
