Another beautifully delicious poem taken from “Love Poems from GOD” by Daniel Ladinsky.
All Things Desire
All things desire to be like GOD,
and infinite space is a mirror
that tries to reflect HIS body.
But it can’t.
All that infinite existence can show us of HIM
is only an atom of God’s Being.
GOD stood behind HIMSELF one night and cast a
brilliant shadow from which creation came.
Even this shadow is such a flame that
moths consume their selves in it every second–
with their sacred passion to possess
Existence mirrors GOD the best it can
though how arrogant for any image in that mirror,
for any human being, to think they know
For HIS will has never been spoken,
HIS voice would ignite
the earth’s wings
and all upon it.
We invent truths about GOD to protect ourselves
from the wolf’s cries we hear and make.
ALL things desire to be like GOD,
all things desire to LOVE.
