On Time And Timelessness

How can the reaches of a mortal mind

Encompass what defies encompassing,

To plumb the depths of time and space to find

The secrets that such explorations bring;

This fascination makes my inward eye

Reflect upon the play of earth and sun:

How rays of gold that wash the morning sky

Drip crimson when the turn of day is done

Until they kiss the sparkle of the sea;

And when I see the jewels of the night,

I know the sun is rising though it be

For but a new beholder of its sight;

    While minds are strained and spent in time and space,

    Do hearts approach eternity by grace.
