And this we call God

(from Aquinas’ Five Ways as quoted in Allison’s Historical Theology)

the greater and lesser owe their measure to

greatest

the effects owe their tumbled reality

to the headwater cause

and it is certain, he tells us,

this motion around us

which moves us

is itself first moved by the unmoving

then causes do not leap ad infinitum

nor movement spiral out of thought

or existence possibly not

what must be, is.

and,

having no other name,

this we call God
