All Things Desire ~ St. Thomas Aquinas

All things desire to be like God,
and infinite space is a mirror
that tries
to reflect His

But it can’t.

All that infinite existence can show us of Him
is only an atom of God’s

God stood behind Himself one night and cast a
brilliant shadow from which creation

Even this shadow is such a flame that
moths consume their selves in it every second -
with their sacred passion to possess

Existence mirrors God the best it can,
though how arrogant for any image in that mirror,
for any human being, to
think they know

His will;

for His will has never been spoken,

His voice would ignite
the earth’s wings

and all upon

We invent truths about God to protect ourselves
from the wolf’s cries we hear
and make.

All things desire to be like God,
all things desire to
