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.

look at love with love

Rub your eyes and look again at love with love

God is love
or so we are told

and yet when we look at love with fear
or greed
or anger

it is often no longer love
to calm the feed
curb the greed
or cool the anger

it is something else
and God becomes someone else
someone arbitrary

and we reflect the God
in whom we believe
and become angry
and cruel

It is time to rub our eyes
And clear them of the clouds
that hide love

and in love
look at love
