(For Daniela at the WordPress site of the poem’s name, with deep respect for her consummate and tireless spiritual scholarship.)


as each tiny diamond
sheds the whole mountain
which supported it
in its early development but then
sought to bury its light
so sparkles every
central truth which you lift
with exquisite care
from dogma in which it had
till that day existed embedded
and hold aloft
clear at last of all obstructions
to the new dawning light
