Into the Soul - Spiritual Poetry

These poems are what arrive when I invite that "something deeper" to speak - that blessed madness that spins planets and curls toes. Feel free to share your thoughts on them. (...and thanks for all the great feedback. I don't always have time to comment back -- but know that I am most grateful!)

Understand Yourself as Liquid

understand yourself as liquid

although the other forms of matter will do

it's a stable breeze that suspends us here
high above the cliffs

caught up in the thermals

we withhold our judgments
to be lifted higher

what we think of the world
changes it

why not stop thinking entirely

and allow the world to be
exactly what it is

beyond our limited projections

understand yourself as liquid

lie down at the feet of rocks
and small children

allow divine gravity to mold
you into a shape not unlike
Moses or Niagara

understand yourself as liquid
and yield to everything
that wishes to make you
part of it

and it
part of you.
