glimpses of the Divine

is an interesting word:
from the Middle English,
meaning: to glance;

earlier today,
en route to the vegetable garden
to secure the day's bounty,
I startled three deer,
two big bucks, and a doe,
who took a couple of ten-foot leaps,
and were gone into the forest;

(they likely had come
to again enjoy the yews)

and the simple sight of them,
brought me this happy news:
it is not so much
how much
you believe
in the Divine,
but rather,
how much
the Divine believes
in you.
