Prayer and reality sandwich

a meditation

 

Prayer and reality sandwich shock 

Be gentle to my journeying soul and yours 
And if one day it knocks at your door 
Give it the gentle reality, the soft reality of a pulsating human embrace unafraid 
But should you close that simple door 
That natural door 
You shall not find life you shall not find love 
for your gentle soul is searching like the other man’s 

alas that man hardened by cumulative hurt and habit, 
by treachery, betrayal and fear of more hurt incomprehensible mystified, 
should close that simple door 
and plunge the world into mirror-image circuits of infinite violence glorified 

Be gentle to my journeying soul and yours 
And if one day it knocks at your door 

………………………………………….. 


Try again later! CLOSED! for chronically elusive development.. 

time of re-opening unknown 

Waiting for “it”: THE miracle
