Morning Poem, July 28, 2016




In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.



It all comes back to poetry

Even, maybe especially, the explanations

Not just those of the theologians

But the physicists, too, and the astronomers

Even historians, the best ones, anyway

Will tell you that in the last analysis

Reality can’t be quantified.

And their words and their equations

Are only analogies, only metaphors

And finally inaccurate and incomplete.


In the beginning was the word.

This is mystery.
