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.

Trust Love

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”
                                                                         Maya Angelou

Sometimes it is hard to trust love
With those who do not love anyone
Perhaps not even themselves have the power

When love is given to things
To money
To ideologies

And not people

One tries to love
But those whose lives embody
Hate, anger, greed, selfishness

Again and again and again
In ways that kill love

Every time we open Facebook
Read a paper
Watch the news

We see what happened with love of the Sacred
Love of others
Is missing

It is not pretty
And our own insistence to try and live love
Is challenged by injustice
By people legislating
Doing such ugly things

We know we must try to put things right

But how do we keep our trust in love
And resist, in love

It is difficult this task
Impossible perhaps
But it is our call
It is the only way
Love wins
