"Isosceles"

I
wish to
write about
the Trinity
How many ways are
there that attempt to show
to the human mind just how
wonderful it is to know God?
An apple with its seed, skin, and pulp
The sun, a star, its awesome light and warmth
Water in three states: solid, liquid, and gas
Gifts eternal: faith and hope, then love (greatest of these)
Racing: a car and its driver, both in need of fuel
An acorn planted becomes an oak, becomes furniture
The Irish have a plant that works as a type (it’s the Shamrock)
All these fun ways to try to picture three in one and one in three
But why stop there? Surely, there are many more—let’s continue!
Maybe a computer? Hardware, software, and user too
That which was, that which is, and that which is yet to be
Marriage—man and wife, producing children for God
Literature: author, publisher, and book
Earthly witnesses: Spirit, water, blood
Spatial dimensions: length, width, and height
An egg with its yolk, white, and shell
Measures of meal with leaven
Understanding is not
needed for Heaven
Perhaps the best
is very
simply

God
