Truth is elusive, like water

or air, everywhere to hand

but try grabbing it, you cant

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
