paintings of the patriarchs

1. sometimes i wonder why
the patriarchs painted you
into the sky
like some grand conductor
of the cosmos
when i most often find you crooning
underneath the stillness
above which
this dance of life is played
sometimes it seems as if
your music is unheard
even as we flow forth
from your song
we move as if disjointed
chaotic and confused
our footsteps beating rhythms
out of time
although our heartbeats beckon
to listen for pulse
the stroking of your lovesong
in our flesh
i suppose then i can understand
this desire for a director
standing front and center
to be seen                                                                                                                          but how will we ever dance
the melody you are
when we ask control
to choreograph the song
