i like fall

because it looks like the world

is burning in slow motion


very beautifully and tenderly

softly kicking up pale

autumn clouds

on its way out…


i like fall

because it’s like

a flickering flame


so quickly snuffed out


and soon

all the white ash from its clouds

will settle like a peaceful blanket

rendering the world

the cold blank void that it is

with barren limbs

and holiday shopping hours

"Religiously speaking, God transcends [her] own name. This is why the use of [her] name easily becomes an abuse or a blasphemy. Whatever we say about that which concerns us ultimately, whether or not we call it God, has a symbolic meaning. It points beyond itself while participating in that to which it points. In no other way can faith express itself adequately. The language of faith is the language of symbols. If faith were what we have shown that it is not, such an assertion could not be made. But faith, understood as the state of being ultimately concerned, has no language other than symbols. When saying this I always expect the question: Only a symbol? [She] who asks this question shows that [she] has not understood the difference between signs and symbols nor the power of symbolic language, which surpasses in quality and strength the power of any nonsymbolic language. One should never say “only a symbol,” but one should say “not less than a symbol.”"

Paul Tillich (Dynamics of Faith)

"But what about things that we love?
We see sun shining on the ground, and the dry dust,
And at home the forests deep with shadows,
And smoke flowering from the rooftops,
Peacefully, near the ancient crowning towers.
These signs of daily life are good,
Even when by contrast something divine
Has injured the soul.
For snow sparkles on an alpine meadow,
Half-covered with green, signifying generosity
Of spirit in all situations, like flowers in May —
A wanderer walks up above on a high trail
And speaks irritably to a friend about a cross
He sees in the distance, set for someone
Who died on the path… what does it mean?"

Suey Park and her friends have been posting some rly good theological/critical contemplations of Christianity and critical race theory as of late. if you’re into theology or some of the pervasive religious experiences of persons of colour, you may want to check this out.

Ever since those wondrous days of Creation
our Lord God sleeps: we are His sleep.
And He accepted this in His indulgence,
resigned to rest among the distant stars.

Our actions stopped Him from reacting,
for His fist-tight hand is numbed by sleep,
and the times brought in the age of heroes
during which our dark hearts plundered Him.

Sometimes He appears as if tormented,
and His body jerks as if plagued by pain;
but these spells are always outweighed by the
number of His countless other worlds.

- Rilke
