Shekinah

shekinah

 

 

Burn it down he says

shall I walk away

and where into the street

shall I stand

like the man

I saw yesterday

on tilt between the lanes

Did not your mother tell you

not to play with fire

 

The tongue it lashes

so quick

when one has nothing to lose

but everything

 

The smoke is thick

it chokes

been on my knees to breathe

my life laid out flat

prostrate

watching redwoods grow in my sleep

 

Burn it down

like a timber falling

into cinder

jumped off that branch

long ago

plunged into heart

this fire

like a seed cracked open

to give rise to new growth

 

Burn it down

make room for hallowed ground

from out of dirt

love springs forth

hollow the heart

to open the eyes of intellect

See through the lies

and into the soul

prana and manna

 

Burn so bright

as one with light

40 years

in the Desert of Sin

Cloud by day

and fire by night

 

Massah and Meribah

the lesson at hand

The Rock and water fall

falter not

a nomad

 

Burn it down

the evilness of heart
