“Otherness cannot be a form.”  Nicholas of Cusa

Sanctuary

The map of the imaginable
is found only in dreams,
vessels its mere dwelling
to strip away the chimera
and reach into the unknown,
leaving the caim of my own
clinging, soft assurance to
discover otherness in
crevice, corner, underside,
the small of the wild is
ever sanctuary to the fire
of creative love.

Note: the first line comes from the philosopher Gaston Bachelard (1884 – 1962)
