And Where might faith be found?
Perhaps he would start at the Vatican,
moving on to the Holy Land,
grand cathedrals, mosques, stupas, synagogues
or country churches.
Or would he look for it
in kitchens, parks or factories?
And among whom might he look for it?
The rich and the prosperous,
the powerful and the comfortable,
or among the poor, the weeping,
and the desperate?
Among the convinced,
or the questioning?
Confident creed reciters,
or honest doubters?
or staunch defenders?
And what will faith look like?
Traditionalist suggest it will be cross-shaped,
polished timber and silver,
designed by a sculptor.
Or it could be an intersection thing,
a vertical timber, rough hewn,
supporting a horizontal;
red stained with rust marked holes?
More likely it will be less obvious,
like tear-streaked faces
and dirty hands, reaching.
