Here In the Shallows…

A bit of verse, unpolished but honest, that occured to me as I drove home from speaking at a local church this morning:

Your whims are more profound

Than our philosophies

We’d drown there at the edges

Of Your thoughts on deeper things


Our highest vaunted wisdom

Is the plain before the peak

Of the lofty comprehension

From which you ever speak


And I here in the shallows

Aware, anew, of late

Seek only that I see enough

To my arrogance abate
