Why seek ye the living among the dead?

Is there no higher plane on which

to press your search?

Why fill your hours with the empty

building of mausoleums?

He is not here!

But if perchance he could be found

within the realm of inconstant reality;

what would be the sign of his presence?

Do you know the shape of that which you seek?

We cannot name his shape as though it were

some measurable dimension,

capable of being seen by any casual glance.

The shape of the one sought

must ever be found within the seeker

c.2011 from SPLINTERS OF LIGHT by Donna Swanson

  1. Interesting. I feel as though your are referring to inner strength, or our individual concept of the Lord. The Idealism of figuring it out on your own, i hope i am on track in once way or another. Either way it was a fantastic read and a pleasure to meet you
