This Mystery

“If any message from the core of reality was ever to reach us, we should expect to find in it that unexpectedness, that willful, dramatic anfractuosity which we find in the Christian faith.

It has the Master touch -- the rough, male-taste of reality, not made by us, or indeed, for us, but hitting us in the face.”

- C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain 

When will life begin and caution cease?
My heart beats
The clock ticks
Anticipation rises

Incomprehensible. Cloud and Fire
Man of War
Prince of Peace

Wonderfully paradoxical
The Ethereal
And fear ebbs

An eagle soars effortlessly
Passion stirs curiosity
This Mystery
Pursues me
