Oh God – a poem

‘Oh God.’
Five letters.
Two words.
One exhale.
Full stop.

‘Oh God.’
All my voice could say.
Trusting that my
very being
would fill in the detail.

‘Oh God.’
Hand over mouth.
Hand over heart.
Your hand over me
I hope.

‘Oh God.’
A prayer.
A cry.
A summons.
A summit.

‘Oh God.’
Five letters.
Two words.
One exhale.
Full stop.
