Books that open up our hearts


three books of divinity
with pages that turn
and turn our thoughts
and open our hearts
day and night to God

the old testament
dispenses the
10 commandmens
for men as a guide
to righteous living
so that they all could
get a tip top 10 for
entry to heaven

the new testament
- the simple love your
enemy lesson which
makes life so much
more livable with its
gift of forgiveness

and from the holy koran -
pity the animals
they are helpless
urnest pleading from
God to stamp the tide
of extinction of some
of his blessings on earth
