Light On Silver Lace

by tommyjacksprat

this light so bright consumes the night
a comet flashing in its flight
an astral deity's delight
while quickly soaring out of sight

an intricate infinity
that radiates reality
is found in all complexity
producing pure perplexity

much more than man can understand
creative is the cosmic hand
that made the stars-the sea-the land
out of the form that once formed man

and not a clue for me or you
to test in time what might be true
or help consider and construe
the secret source from which we grew

no ancillary answers here
to questions that are crystal clear
as man must face his greatest fear
while holding faith and fate so near.

divide and then divide again
until you see that you are in
the very place where you have been
so you again must now begin

expansive and extreme the space
where we can see creation's face
that lies as light on silver lace
with great and gracious guiding grace
