Looking for God on Google, 2004

Today I looked for God on Google,

a million pages,

all directions:

the Hubble Deep Field,

and the Mandelbrot’s.

Einstein’s elegant equations.

 

A page says, “Zed squared equals Alpha.”

I don’t know what this means.

Another page talks about time.

Can God be found on Google?

That’s a question of mine.

There’s food and jewels,

virtue and vice,

but no voice of God.

 

There’s entertainment, news,

products, food,

God is lost amongst the ads.

When I looked for God on Google,

I searched five million pages,

but didn’t see a God on one.

Some believed.

Some did not.

Some don’t even care.

 

Today I lost again,

in the ultimate game of hide and seek.

Maybe I’m not supposed to look.

Maybe nothing’s hiding.

Maybe the last thing people notice is

something that isn’t hidden.
