Whispers

Standard

Listen in

On whispers

Within

Each wisp of grass

Your song

So sonic

Ringing

Love is love

In Living

Full to vast

Little Soul

Standard

Little soul

Went flying

Into big Soul

It got burnt

Had never learnt

The mastery

Of mysteries

For love so

Heating hot

Cannot be got

Too close

For comforts

Sake it just

May wake

A passion

That could

Break the chains

Of fate and then

What then

Will there

Be left for little

Soul to do

In me and you?

Surrender

Standard

Come

Become undone

To find

The one

You may call God

Become

Struck dumb

Be deaf

Be blind

Take all your limbs away

Your memories

Your hymns

Forsake

Your dreams

Let go

And know

Of nothing

All the wisdom

You construe

Undo

Till you

Be naked and bereft

Are left

With IT

Jam For Tea

Standard

In a paper cup

I sailed across

A saw tooth sea to see

The sight of the almighty

Making jam for me

The God whipped up

A measuring cup

Of sugar from the sky

And placed it on a china plate

And gave to me to try

Too cold said I to mighty God

And nodding he agreed

He warmed it up with heated breath

He added fruit a bit of zest

And there was Jam for tea.
