  • If

    In this world, with thy earthly life, thou art under heaven, stars, and elements,
    also under hell and devils; all ruleth in thee, and over thee.
    - Jakob Bohme


    If we are lost in the Cloud of Unknowing
    And thereby have great need
    To consult with
    The soothsayers of dream and purveyors
    Ostensibly of arcane wisdom

    If we bring bountiful offerings
    To the Priests at the temple
    Perhaps
    What the Oracle of Delphi conveys
    Will bless our desires

    Not like Croesus of Lydia
    Who donated a fortune
    To the Oracle
    And misinterpreted the prophecy
    Of the Priests

    If our wakefulness
    Was not fraught
    With so many luminous possibilities
    From the
    Garden of Earthly Delights to savour

    If only we could touch
    Each other
    In the place of touch
    Quicken our melding of physical desire
    Made manifest

    If the tremulous strands of touch
    Would only last
    Like a deep kiss that lingers its pleasure
    We might understand
    The spiritual speech of Angels
