Is Air There?

As you do not know the path of the wind,
or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,
so you cannot understand the work of God,
the Maker of all things.
(Ecclesiastes 11:5)

Here’s an interesting little poem for your consideration today. Read through it and think deep thoughts.


I don’t believe in air
no one has ever seen it
no one has ever felt it
between finger and thumb
converts talk about
tasting the air
and something in the air
but there’s always another explanation
the nearby sea, a factory’s pipes
a pile of fresh manure
it’s not the so-called air that smells

scientists have complete faith in this air
they say that it upholds
and sustains our world
take away the air, they argue
and we’d go too
meteorologists attribute
signs and wonders to the air
people thrown to the ground
trees uprooted, the landscape rearranged

it sounds like superstition to me
if there is air
who made it?
where does it all go?

why doesn’t it show itself
just one time for proof?

friends ask me why windows rattle
and hair goes awry
but I don’t believe in air

I don’t believe in air
air is just another word
for something that’s not there
