As My Prehistoric Father Did - Poem by Gert Strydom

Take my words to above
to a place of ineffable greatness
and let me behold in prayer
the unnameable God
and be a child of the flock
from the vast universe
far and wide,
that has eternal peace.

Give me the primordial sense
to pray to Him
that is forever good and true
and in the silence that is absolutely still
let me hear His voice
as my prehistoric father did.

    I really liked this poem. Asking for ' primordial wisdom ' is a great line, so straight to the heart of any belief. The need to shed the cloak of sophistication in order to feel the warmth exists in many matters of the heart and soul. (Report) Reply
