The Garden Datura

The Angelic Triathlon;
The Up ‘n’ Away,
the Look All Around,
and then,
the Big Come Down.
Held in the Datura Garden,
somewhere beyond nature,
hidden deep within a space
and time triangulation.
Not for the meek,
for the body is weak.
But angels, in spirit,
they belong.
Yet, please be so kind,
not to be a closed mind
behind a drawn blind,
gone all worldly wrong.

And yes,
there is a purpose
for that emptiness
down deep in your soul.
Never forget
in the spirit
you are greater
than all you defeat.

Seekers of all creation,
steer clear of the synthetic.
Take care, beware of poison,
where angels trumpet
the knowledge of darkness
… and light.
Saints and sinners,
losers and winners,
with heaven’s love
so pure and bright,
the choices are always
black or white.
Doing justly
Loving mercy
Walking humbly
Living carefully
Forgiving recklessly

When all but over,
that carnival of the night,
yet morning’s rising glory
still many miles away.
And a warm bed
nowhere in sight,
as the legs
of evening’s dregs
now beginning to sway.

Yes, we are body weak.
And the angels,
in spirit belong.
Yet, with a touch of grace,
and all of time and space,
the Kingdom to seek
the shepherd of the meek.
For He is strong.
And to Him, you and me,
we all truly belong.

Adonis left dead tired *


“All forms of love, suffering,
and madness. He [the poet]
searches himself.
He exhausts all poisons
in himself and keeps only
their quintessence.”
~ Arthur Rimbaud

However, as it is written:
“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and no human mind has
conceived” ~ the things God
has prepared for those who
love him ~ these are the
things God has revealed to
us by his Spirit. The
Spirit searches all things,
even the deep things of God.
~ Paul the Apostle
