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.

A Psalm

“I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness”
― E.E. Cummings


I will rail against the darkness

though the forces of evil
the forces of greed and hate
are powerful

yet will I stand in defiance
the liars
the manipulators
may win

the oppressors may trod
on women
and trample minorities under foot

yet will I stand
and look to the mountains
and the sky

and breathe deep
the sacred Presence
and I will know


for the Presence
the love of the Sacred one
is as eternal as the mountain
and as big
as the sky
and as close as my breath
