The Empty Place

“I am silence. I am poverty, I am solitude, for I have renounced spirituality to find God.” – Thomas Merton

I have come to the empty place where You remain a reflection, 

Nothing more than a reflection, ripples in a pool, a fleeting glimpse, 

A window with no point of entry. 

I have come to the empty place where religion is no consolation,

Where everything is lost to a bottomless sky,

And my soul sings: “Alleluia”. 

Finally, I have come to the empty place, 

Finally. Alleluia!
