MISAPPREHENDING

MISAPPREHENDING THE COSMOS

I thought the cosmos laid the foundation of the earth.
Misapprehended.

I thought the sun determined earth’s measurements.
Misapprehended.

I thought the stars sang together to lay earth’s cornerstone.
Misapprehended.

I thought birds stretched a line upon it.
Misapprehended.

I thought the heavenly beings shouted for joy.
Misapprehended.

I thought I could call the clouds to rain.
Misapprehended.

I thought I could call forth lightning.
Misapprehended.

Or tilt the water-skins of the heavens.
Missed it.

Or have understanding.
Missing.

Hunt the lions.
Crouch in their dens.
Satisfy their young.
Provide for the raven.
Mmmmm.

I misapprehended.
It was God…all along…Infinite
Not me….infinitesimal.

(see Job 38;1-7; 34-41)
