Lead us up beyond unknowing and light,
     up to the farthest, highest peak
          of mystic scripture,
     where the mysteries of God's Word
          lie simple, absolute and unchangeable
          in the brilliant darkness of a hidden silence.
     Amid the deepest shadow
          they pour overwhelming light
          on what is most manifest.
     Amid the wholly unsensed and unseen
          they completely fill our sightless minds
     with treasures beyond all beauty.


-- from The Essential Mystics: Selections from the World's Great Wisdom Traditions, Edited by Andrew Harvey
Poetry Chaikhana | Dionysius the Areopagite - from The Doctrine of Infinite Growth
