A Lower Deep

Numinous

Play

If I were to tell you
There waits a beast behind the door
What would your mind conjure
But feelings of fear
What if it were a ghost
The spirit of one long dead
What feelings fill your heart then
Deepest darkest dread

Beyond the gates of infinity
Nothing natural can make the chasmic leap

Yet still there lies another
Puzzling possibility
Behind the door rests a god
Omnipotent and wise
What now forebodes it's release
Only inexpressible awe
Nothing in our experience
Could paint its likeness

Beyond the gates of infinity
Nothing natural can make the chasmic leap

Numinous
Aspect of grandeur
Numinous
No explanation only awe
Numinous
Symbol of wonder
Numinous
No explanation only awe
