Granum Sinapis (Anonymous): A grain of mustard seed


Granum Sinapis (Anonymous): Granum Sinapis

This was possibly written by a follower of Meister Eckhart, maybe by Eckhart himself.  It is clearly Trinitarian, but that is easy to overlook. I find that any piece of great mystical poetry could just as easily have be written by a Christian mystic, a Sufi, a Hindu mystic, a Taoist, or a follower of any other mystical tradition.  Clues to specific religious (or non-religious) background seem superficial, while the deep core of the poem is universal..
