Elusivity


Truth is elusive, like water
or air, everywhere to hand
but try grabbing it, you can't
wrap your hands 'round more
than will touch your fingers
the whole eludes capture
intimate and unfathomed
beyond understanding
flowing through our grasp
as would water and air
when trying to grasp all
yet life depends on these
as depends on Truth and
these little bits we hold
though not the entirety are
sufficient to prove the being
of Greatness beyond our grasp
un-clearly seen, yet seen
un-wholly known, yet known
we pursue a shadow cast
by Vastness beyond our sight
until that day our fingers
will grab hold and touch all
Truth 'til then elusive stays
known only by parts
each none the less True
for being not the Whole
