concealed in now and here

God is a pure no-thing,
       concealed in now and here:
the less you reach for him,
       the more he will appear.

Really pretty diptych and really nice poem. I Especially love the mood of the photo on the right. The wording of the poem reminds me of e.e. cummings which is funny since it is centuries old.

Funny, Julia. I think this is exactly why I liked the poem. It sticks in my head the way cummings lines do.
