Da' at

Once in a while my thoughts turn
to everything
and not.

And it is as if my mind
to give a tangible glimpse
of something wonderful.

And a wave of joy
delivering a fluttering truth
excites my heart
lifts my soul
and I almost
perceive it all.

But the enormity is too vast
and before I can grasp it
it is gone.

Oh, YES!


I love to see poets dealing with the crux of lifes philosophies (to quote Shane MacGowan). I was meaning to send a private message to you asking you to post this one, I remember it from the previous Neopoet encarnation.

The enormity of God is too great, too vast.

There is a joke from the film "Dogma"
Human beings have neither the physical
nor the psychological ability to withstand
the voice oft he one true God. Were you to hear it
Your mind would cave in and your heart would
explode within your breast. We went through
five Adams before we worked that one out.

Be well, thanks for sharing. JohnXxx

What a lovely, uplifting piece! Nice to see your work again!


I absolutely love this poem, liking your style.

Love Lou

Stand tall, be proud to be who you are, give the world the finger!!!!

The hidden Sephiroth!
This is very good, it captures the ecstatic state of Da'ath (Da'at) very well indeed, and its transitory nature due to our inability to comprehend the infinite from our finite reality.

Well done

this piece should appeal to all (who are not brain dead)
smooth,in execution, and universal in theme
I really like the presentation and style
I like the simplicity and clarity, in the use of language, to make big points about the subtle and complex
you have done that here. I like and admire this piece very, very much

Great!... and that's my final answer!

best regards


I second the emotion of brittle light. Take Care. huey

I like this as it is of emotion and imagery of mind and heart. I know I had that also. Just stopping by to lend a hello and read some work here. I hope all is well by you and you are adjusted to your new home.


As good at capturing that not quite grasped great truth as it was on old site............scribbler

I know that feeling…and
even though I fail to grasp this enormity, I too, still have
a feeling of happiness (as you express your joy).
I had never heard of da’at before. Very interesting
This gem gives one much to think about.



i posted this again as john asked for it (and then obviously forgot he had lol... typical male...)
thanks for the great comments
love judy
