Transcendent One

Sublimely ineffable

Before and Beyond all …

~~~

Forgive my crass

and futile propensity

for trying to ‘fathom You’

by rationalizing

by analyzing

by categorizing

~~~

And forgive the bare-faced

arrogance by which I reduce You

to philosophical argument

to scientific formula

to mathematic equation

~~~

as if the Incomprehensible

might be so logically explained

~~~

Gift me with

the lowliness of mind

which makes room for mystery

which bows, discalceate,

lovingly

trustingly

adoringly

and rises again to live submissively,

with wide-eyed wonder

as a child,  free

from fallen reason’s tyranny
