Only Prophets

When the world itself disappears,
There's a higher force majeure,
A portal, that your foot falls through-
Bottomless and boundless, too.

The eye is useless; thinking's stopped,
That potent kernel, 'real' is popped;
You come to realize god is mind,
And all fetters, can unbind

Unthreads needles, goes within,
Where the world's but distant din;
The closet of pure being's air-
Where no time- no space- is there.

And when you find that you've returned,
The minutes of that meeting- burned;
Only prophets allowed to see-
To carry back- the truth of being.

    There is deffinitely a force majeure at work through this poet. Following every
    word closely in this poem and it is so easy to see that this comes from just
    a bit different plane than what the average person walks daily... This is a
    superbly gifted poet who brings forth such high level considerations. Just so
    fantastic..... Keep the ink well full poet lady......

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
