stillness

you don’t need
that old bible
or the new one either
no chanting or weeping
no pulpit star
no flickering flame
or burning bush
no acid
or LSD
you don’t need the river
or the stars
no scented ritual
no flagellation
you simply need
stillness
deep in your heart
if you want to hear
God speak

  1. I’m so glad you entered with this! I love the dis of organized religion in this, it just so ruins things for me, you know? Thank you so much for this.

    We just came out of an ice storm with two days of no power. Talk about stillness! (after the storm but before the return of power)
