Prompt for RWJ, Prompt 278

Hey guys, would it be ok if I go dark on you? As if I no longer existed kind of thing. I do feel like it, this kind of retreat, which is really a retreat from humanity. Why? Because why impose one’s self on another person right? Why say or do anything that will say, look at me. I’d rather no one’s looking. I don’t mind if strangers are looking. After all I’m just a pixel, another stranger. I’d just as well be an anonymous person. And after all, I’m not really seeking your attention. I’m really seeking…for God. And I want to know, for myself, that I really do exist. That’s who I am in conversation with, alright. What? Faith, that’s the thing I’m looking for. And Robert Brewer too.

  1. Do not go dark…

    I sat for days in the shade
    hoping for a vision of love
    or some story I could share.
    My cat rubbed me up,
    leapt to the bough behind me
    and settled in to wait for God.

    When the rain began,
    we went back in the house.
    The cat wandered off.
    I cooked my tea, then sat,
    looking out the window.
