Door to the Divine

Where is the Door?

Where is the door to God?
In the sound of a barking dog.

In the ring of a hammer, 
in a drop of rain, 
in the face of everyone,
everyone I see.

Where is the door 
to the divine tavern? 
Yes, in all we can behold.

I can imagine that image painted on leaf-shaped metal as a wall sconce.
