Sacred Fire


In quiet but deep prayer
Bearing my deepest self on high
Knowing my pleas to be heard
Suddenly
So suddenly..........
........................... ............
My heart vibrates
A comforting warmth follows along
It spreads through my body
My body shakes and trembles
..........................
It swells
Love greater than earth, mortal
Is felt
It reaches to the soul
It resembles arms
Clinging me close and tight
More precious than motherly love
I cannot speak
I cannot move
Tears are streaming
I am lost within heaven's embrace
The world I know
Gone for a moment
Yet not many know
How this feels
It's hard to explain
Even words do not describe it
It leaves me in awe
I long for it to stay
It feeds me so
Bliss oh sweet bliss
Beyond earthly pleasure
Fills me so
It belongs to me
No mortal interfers
Mine
Between me and my Father Divine
Mysteries unfold
Then again
My toungue restored
Limbs can move
My face beet red
My hair in mats
Anyone who saw
Me after a sacred fire
Would ask what ails me?
Then I would say
I am as happier than I could ever be
They would not believe me
They's say I was made or insane
That I'm sick in my brian
No one understands
The love from sacred fire.....
What a shame
But I press on.........

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
