The Dark Embrace

Being drawn away

From the visible world

.

Was an anguish

As the mind loosened

.

Its grip

On illusory facts

.

And flew instead

Like a spirit

.

Into the dark

Embrace of God.

The Universe Gathers

 

The blue sky

Worships you

 

The clouds

Sing and dance

 

The sun

And the moon

 

Rise

And bow down

 

And the universe

Gathers

 

In one

Vast congregation

 

To ponder

The living word.
