Together

Our toes dig into the earth,
    stretching to its depths,
    branching and intertwining each with each,
    meshing with God;
Our fingers reach into the cosmos,
    stretching to its outer limits,
    branching and interweaving each with each,
    merging with God;
Stretching from the infinitesmal depths,
   around to the infinite reaches,
   fingers touching toes,
   interpenetrated,
   embraced and filled with God.
