Tomorrow is waiting…
I. Tomorrow is waiting-
Will it be a playful kitten
or ravening beast-
A life and death cycle of dragons
or meandering stream?
II. Remember God made the world from Himself- there was only Itself.
From that first sacrifice, our moment is still animated by simple, ineffable Godhead- We as ineffable as the Original Sacrifice, since our very effable material nature cannot have being without its ineffable spirit.
III. I remember
a moment when I was four
I pretended I
Because that’s what my elders
were able to do.
Actually, I just remembered the Golden Book text that my elders
read to me over and over. There were only three or four words large print words
to a page about the Seven Dwarfs mining diamonds.
the mountains and the cloud-
the dirt itself, vibrate to the presence of light- is thus made.
All else is illusion and shadow- and fades…
Steve Frost 12.7.’14
LOVE POEM- GOD TO THE WORLD
Are you floating away- a balloon liberated from a kid’s party?
A leaf floating away on a rapid stream?
A boulder tumbles down a mountain- Not back up.
A snowflake melting in one's hand, doesn't return to the cloud
Mercury goes up in a thermometer, but then it goes back down.
A fallen leaf becomes mulch and grows a tree.
Melted snow becomes rain, freezes and falls as snow again.
Boulders become gravel then sand- settle to the ocean floor- ocean dries up, sand hardens- earthquakes and rising/falling/shifting of continents makes mountains out of them
So, as you see, all is well
I am the Ocean! I compose, destroy and return. I am heat and cold. And Heat.
Where is there to go?
