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.

God's infinite "yes"

“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”
― E.E. Cummings

my body
gracefully and not so gracefully
says no
and yet the sacred says yes

pundits lie
politicians mislead
haters hate
and yet

a friend misunderstands
and as I plod my way through yet another day
purpose grows dim
and still

it is hard to stay with no
when the Sacred
stares you in the face
with infinite
