Merging, Yielding

A KNOCKING ON MY HEART

The woodpecker
on the heart of the
tree goes tap tap tap
The waves to the heart
of the pier.. lap lap lap
The water onto the rock
goes drip drip drip
God on my heart knocks..
rap rap rap

ALLAH AND YHWH

Allah
All Love
Love All
Alleluia

YHWH

Oh God
May my way
through joy
be one with
Your way

LOTUS LILY STEM VACUUM

As water passes through
a lilypad stem
As wind passes through
a belltower
As music passes through
an empty flute
God's Spirit
passes through the
surrendered


GRAVESTONES OF ZILLIONS

Creatures Untold
zillions times
zillions
have died
killed by human beings
by the billions

... who knew their
names?
who knew what
each was like?
One was kind..
to all zookind
another
did rage
about his cage..

are there flags for
each one
planted like gravestones
on the bellies
of the beaus and belles
who devoured them..

God knows each
of their names

FLOWING IN FLOWERING

Spirit river flowing
becomes the flowering
of the spring fields
which to it yield

WAVELET DEVOTEES

Wavelet devotees
come ever toward
their guru
upon the shore

NO HUNDREDTH LAMB

Not one beam of
light in God's array
has been lost or
mislaid or gone astray..
They are in Her rainbows
and His newgreening sprays.

WATER WILL

The willow's will
is the water's will
and the willow wends
his way
with water and wind.

RIVER CHANGES NAME

As the river merges
with another river
and changes her name,
does a monk join
his consciousness to
God and change his name
.. do some women
without parochial
consciousness
change their names
when wed

(some combine
names.. some keep
their maiden names)

WELL

Memory's infinite cells
drift up from
memory's wells
.. unsummoned by
any audible bell


FLOWING IN FLOWERING

Spirit river flowing
becomes the flowering
of the spring fields
which to it yield

WAVELET DEVOTEES

Wavelet devotees
come ever toward
their guru
upon the shore


WATER WILL


The willow wends
his way
with water and wind.
The willow's will
is the water's will

When I hear the whippoorwill
I stop whipping my poor will.

TEACHING FROM THE MORNING SUN

Awaken the blazing
sun in each chakra.
Its light will go forth
to mingle with the light
of other awakened suns.

SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM
OF GOD AND ALL WILL BE ADDED
UNTO YOU

the caboose obediently
follows the engine
the river's train
follows her headwaters
to the sea
those who 'seek first
the kingdom of God'
find He speaks verily

PEN

When she realized God would show
her endless movies when she
meditated she was able to
achieve detachment about books
... but not yet the pen
