Looking Out from the God Mirror

I am the shadow of the Lord

Like a shadow attached to a person I am attached to God
I spring from him in the shape of him
I am nothing apart from him
Merely a projection separated from him

I am a reflection of the Lord
More than mere silhouette with more substance than shadow
Not truly freestanding but intimately analogous
I have no being apart from what I reflect

I am not really a person without him or apart from his person
To be what I am I must stay attached to the Lord
And gaze out from the mirror upon him
