You Have To Stretch Your Hands


You have
To stretch your hands
My Monsignor
The roof of the gilt cavern
Where are wandering
Round and round
So high it be
Though
We
We think that with
Our bare hands
We touch it

    I'm surprised the Monsignor joined you on this journey inside the cave. He strikes me as a very cautious man not given to such gratuitous entertainment. Besides he is so cool, ironic, dispassionate, the messy worlds of nature would seem to hold no allure for him. I may be wrong. I may have misread the MONTSIGNOR. But this seemed closer to the Poet Seer's type of exploit. But I caught up in this claustrophobic atmosphere and felt relieved to leave it behind. (Report) Reply

    You have to reach out with those OTHER hands, the grasp of the soul is infinite and depthless. I love this. (Report) Reply
