from Becoming the Mountain / Poem


Never underestimate the power of
impossible desire

Flight would never have occurred to us nor
loss of lesser self with God’s encompassing

Presence and ultimate All-pervasiveness
in every domain of our being

Saying what was unknown to us before
on prophetic tongues out of our usual human shallows

turning the tragic momentariness of our life
into a cup of delicious and deliriously

tasted expansion the wine of His illumination and
the drink that slakes all thirsts in a

single swallow by His Grace
the heart’s tongue becoming suddenly capable of


6/6/2006 (from In the Realm of Neither)
