Sacred Reality

John Chuchman – bio

John Chuchman


I used to think

Symbols gave physical reality

Poetic meaning.

I am now learning

that the physical world

has no reality

except as Symbol.

Symbol is no longer

the subjective creation

of my poetic fancy,


the only objectively valid definition

of reality.

Symbolic Vision

is the ability to apprehend

within objects I can sense

the invisible reality

of the intelligible

that lays beyond them.

My sense of the Sacred

is an innate consciousness

of the Presence of God,

feeling this Presence


in all things.

The reality of things
