Reach

In forests
ponderosa branches
like flying buttresses
reach for him
but so do the deep roots
of pine and cedar.
Before cathedrals
were built or dreamt
man and woman
met deep in the burrows
of catacombs
deep in the hollows
of the earth.

Earth could not contain him.
Tree could not restrain him.
Rock could not confine him.
Sky could not encompass him.
He who is
beyond all imagining,
our beginning and end.
