My God
Julie Creighton


I don't know why they have to make God so complicated,
all those rules, mysteries, miracles.
They say God talks to prophets
but I'm not impressed.
God talks to me all the time
whispering in my ear.
Sometimes praising, sometime pointing out the error of my ways.
but always at the end of the day,
he comes to bless me
and this is what he has to say.
"You're a slow learner, but it's OK.
Tomorrow, with my help,
Maybe, you'll do better."

Julie Creighton is retired and lives with her husband of 50 years on a ranch in central Texas. Although she has always enjoyed reading, Julie's appreciation for poetry really developed late in life. She began writing poetry after a girls' trip where the theme was to bring and share favorite poems. At the end of the weekend,  each wrote an original poem to share with the group. Julie enjoyed this new experience so much that she has begun sharing her experiences and thoughts through poetry. Your Daily Poem has moved her to want to share her poems.
