in distinctions of story

The distinctions of story—
my story and your story, his and hers, ours and theirs—
the distinctions of all these stories
blur at the edges—
or would, you know, if stories had edges.
But precisely where you look to see where one person’s story
is distinguished from another person’s story,
the distinctions blur.
As do distinctions within the story of God—
the stories of God,
which blur—
shimmer—
merge,
and God’s particular way of being—with us—
God’s specific way of living and loving,
however hazy,
however indistinct,
emerges.
The shimmering way of God
is not a clarity of direction we see before us,
but what we see in others,
and what others see in us—
merging.
God help us—
emerging.
Indeed.
