I wonder…


Why is it
That I am more familiar
With the sound of a rainstick
Than the rain?

Why is it
That I am more familiar
With the sounds of a water fountain
Than a waterfall?

Why is it
That I am more familiar
With the sound of a seagull’s cry
Than an orphan’s cry?

Why is it
That I am more familiar
With the religion of the church
Than God?
