God does not exist.


God is of his own kind
he is not he or she or it
he is not before or after
the old God
is always new
even when the axis of the universe breaks
and God dies on the cross
so even in death
he is the new beginning
God is not a being
not a nothing
not an everything
and God also does not exist
what exists decays
what lives that dies
we could speak more daring
of you God
you stayed mysterious to us
a child knows you
and a human in agony
who knows you
to whom fails every word

dark night of the soul



each word is a search
when I speak me out
and say nothing
your being is not to grasp
you are obvious
like the light
I think of the darknesses
when your name breaks to me
in emptiness
remains comforting
only a dark silence
which is brighter
than every earthly light
