Alienation Mystery

God invisible, inaccessible in dark and light, Total space of universe, and still presence in mystery masked like night Where every part of me fintely in infinite you is traced To whatever mountain height my fragile form found safe There so wide depth outside our insecure depth of fall Seasoning me to mirage of space, an hermit from your grace. You are the all of every grain of sand, an eternity to know My wayward ways wander witless in the palm of your widthless hand With promised presence present in my grief alone. What then to that huddled lump of breath you meant before his sin What then shall I frightend and fumbling since the fall expect again When writhing on your cross, you in my skin felt no other pain Acessibility makes loneliness long history hampers pain The fragment broke my dual claim of rib and heart before you came Love alienated from its peace, forsook sin to be closer drawn to you. Yet omnipresent here already how much closer is content Was the woman more, a hidden all of you in me, visible all from you Give me grace that the questions may from troubled search relent
