Articles of Faith

What I take on faith is that my experiences of the Divine are that, and not hallucination. Everything else can be explained everywhere from pure magic to pure psych/biopsych, but I take the Divine (not the experience of same, but the fact that what I experience is in fact Divine and not just in my head) on faith.

Some people have to take the experience itself on faith. Some people struggle to put a name to it. (I'd struggle if I tried. That's why I don't, not unless I am given a name to go with.)

And it doesn't feel like faith to me. It feels like certainty.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
