The Story

(a found poem)

 

The story was a riddle

pointing to a shimmering surface

to hidden depths

to inner experience.

 

The story

neither sought nor found

like a melody continually improvised

full of blasphemy

for many generations venerated

should not be read simply.

 

The story

found in the garden

between the infinite and finite

above the abyss that separates

the failed and perfection

depends upon the divine

hidden deep within

as well as outside.
