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 Light Shines

All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.”
― Francis of Assisi

darkness like a shroud covers the earth
it leaves us stumbling to see
the faces of the poor

it leaves us groping in the dark
for love

it leaves us silent and afraid
in a corner of the universe

and yet
even the smallest point of light
can defeat the darkness

just one word
one act
one touch
one smile

and the shroud is torn
