The Elephant’s Tail

I AM, a mind conceiving
worlds of mystery and illusion
man, creature, planets, stars
thoughts I fling near and far

I AM, a concept we cannot
fully perceive
inadequate are words
even our thoughts
cannot grasp the enormity.

Into the box of our
narrow thinking
a drop of ocean
in a vial
a flicker of light
in a sea of stars
we hold only the tip
of the elephant’s tail
and think we finally
understand
the Great I AM.
