Praveen Kumar In Celestial Glow

Greater Than Infinite

You're greater than infinite,
You're immesurable, invisible,
Yet all pervading around me;
However tall I stretch to catch you,
You remain beyond my grasp;
However hard I strive to withdraw from,
You resurface to prove again
That I'm incomplete without you;
You bubble up from stark void
And disappear in infinite's stream,
Leaving me puzzled what you are.

I called you my golden wonder,
But I realise words too shallow;
No wonders can be puzzling as you're,
Nor any gold be so noble as you're,
Nor a golden wonder has your depth;
The glitter I see is from divine light
That streams out of your subtle charm;
The subtle depth I find around you
Reflects intensities of power you have;
You're present all over me, within,
But I see you nowhere, hear nowhere,
Nor trace you beside, however I try;
For, you transcend me, my fancies,
Beyond my horizons is your depth.

You're greater than infinite,
You're immesurable, invisible,
Yet all pervading around me,
Leaving me puzzled what you are.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
