Discovery

“Call me to lie down in fragrance.” D. Margoshes ~ Season of Lilac (epigraph for dVerse’s Poetics: Beginning at the End)

This large expanse of space captured with the Hubble Space Telescope features the galaxy SDSSJ225506.80+005839.9.

if there were no skies
to darken in hues of blue
to contain green scents
what would I see
but infinity’s reach
my heart torn
lungs bursting
in timeless space
racing stars
hastening at your call
arriving in final destination
to find that after all
the unmoored spinning
the vain rectifications
of physics and philosophy
that vast expanse
I was traveling through
was you


Acts 17:28
‘In him we live and move and have our being’

  1. I am literally swooning right now 😀 Especially love; “to find that after all the unmoored spinning the vain rectifications of physics and philosophy that vast expanse I was traveling through was you.” 💝💝

  2. This is a beautiful reflection of Paul’s words in Ephesians 4: He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heaves, in order to fill the whole universe. God fills the entire universe and we abide in Him and He in us. There is nothing that is in the God who fills all things, whether near or far.

    1. Yes, though the distinction between the self-existent Creator and his contingent creation remains, he has made his divine life accessible by faith in His incarnate Son. This makes Paul break out in rapturous praise in his epistles as in Ephesians! Thank you so much for reading and commenting. 🙂

      1. I see that I should have re-read my response more closely as I left out a very important word…There is nothing that is NOT in the God who fills all things, whether near or far.

        1. As Ephesians 4:4-6 (ESV) says — “There is one body and one Spirit–just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call– one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Hallelujah!
