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.

Being Spiritual

And try to squeeze light
.... into your parched being " .....
- Hafiz

we work so hard
at our spirituality
trying to squeeze Sacred from our soul
as juice from a lemon

or perhaps more aptly
water from a stone


but the secret is in the ceasing
and the being

relief comes to this parched soul
as I stand motionless
in the dust of the road
and watch the sun rise into a cobalt sky
and kiss the mountain

Sacred fire
