Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Soft and Open

the rain falls on frozen ground
the earth receiving
and yet 
not receiving
the life from heaven

only ground that is not frozen
that is soft
and open 
can receive the rain
and allow it is slowly sink
deep into the earth
where hungry roots await

so it is with so many things
words come
and can be heard
but listening only happens
when soft and open
we allow those words to go 
deep and find
the roots of our soul
only then can understanding blossom

so too
