What If?
by Cindee Snider Re  
8/01/2011 / Poetry


What if we stretch imagination
W I D E ?

And stand at the edge of eternity
And leap?

Pause in the chaos

Still
Silent
Expectant
Content
Waiting

Simply because
God is God?

What if we reach beyond the door
And roll down grassy hills,
Stopping, quiet,
To gaze at clouds?

What if we climb a mountain
On our knees,
Because love costs,
And sacrifice cuts deep,

Seeping,
Bleeding slowly into joy?

What if poetry weaves
Color into life,
And stories bleed
Emotion,
And artists cover
Canvases with truth?

What if words heal,
Bending difference into light,
Shading gray,
Framing the untamable,
The august, the Holy,
Harnessing joy,
And spilling hope across the sky
Like paint?

What if imagination unifies,
And strokes division into joy,
Splintering contention,
And refracting love into
A billion tiny rainbows
Coloring the world white?

What if we stretch imagination
W I D E?

And stand at the edge of eternity
And leap?



*This poem was written in response to this quote from Luci Shaw, Breath for the Bones (ch. 5): "It was [C.S] Lewis's conviction (and perhaps MacDonald's belief too) that if we saturate ourselves in richly creative literature in Scripture with its potent imagery; in fiction with its narrative flow and power; in poetry that joins emotion with idea, image, music, logic with intuition, proposition with imaginative truth division may be healed and unity restored."

Cindee Snider Re lives in Sussex, WI with her husband, their five children, two cats, and two Shichon puppies. She enjoys quiet evenings, long walks, good books, homeschooling her kids, and lots of good, strong, hot, black tea.
