The Secret Colors of God

Catalog, Collection / Friday, July 15th, 2005

In The Secret Colors of God Nancy Thomas paints ordinary scenes along life’s journey with vivid words – words that startle us with their clarity and challenge us with their insights. Her verses contain clarifying commentary upon our ordinary ventures and offer a helpful context for interpreting them. Whether whimsical, wistful, satirical, reflective, celebratory, humorous, or prayerful, these poems open the shutters of the soul to let the Light shine in.

After Twenty Years

It’s not so much that
you happened to me
as it is that
you keep on happening,
not so much that then
I fell-in-love
as that
I’m still living
in the hole
I fell into
and that
the view
from up here
is so expansive.
