Reading about poetry can never be a substitute for the experience itself! If not Milosz, someone else; but you will be hard pressed to discover a surer guide to the human experience or a more gifted voice to interpret it.
Formed in the image and likeness of God, / We rejoice; / Fired by violence and facing away, / We recoil; / Defaced, despairing, curved in on ourselves, / We cry; / Remaking, repairing, curved into the world, / You come, the Image of God.
Conflict is stranger than fiction;
Love is stronger than faction;
God is no stranger to conflict.
God is stranger than we know,
stronger than we feel,
weaker than we think,
wider than we imagine.
The cup of Gethsemane
is the cup of the Trinity.
