Things spiritual

NEGATIVE PRINT
I clench my fist on tender things,
And close my ears to silent wings,
I purse my lips at taste that’s real,
And bolt my heart on all I feel.

With open arms I love the crude,
Embracing all that’s loud and rude,
And in the night my reign is wild,
I am the wilderness’s child.

My thoughts are all distorted fright,
Medusa’s snakes in knotted blight,
I scramble for the crumbs of life
To find them dry and full of strife.

I search for men with dead blue eyes
To see my own reflected lies,
And cling to worldly things and they
Elude me every single day.

Elude, elude – illusions all,
The mirror mirror on the wall
Now shattered to a thousand shards
All tricking with their bright facades.

Tricking into cheating games,
Delusions with my heart in flames,
A captive in deceit’s deep thrill,
A victim of my own strong will.

And as the will engorges more
The thrills burn burn me to my core,
The false deceiver leaves my room
The cravings multiply in bloom.

The wanting, wanting, one loud scream,
The nightmare now a toxic stream,
The last denial - owl’s live yell -
Then silence. It’s my own death knell.

And in the great big nothingness
A tender wind comes to caress
My face and eyes, my ears, my fists
And slowly, slowly, all untwists.

And smooth and tender is the night
I am no longer flight or fright,
Nor mask nor cheat nor Queen of slight,
There is within a small dim light.

The mad kaleidescope now is still,
Those crazy colours of my will,
I am no more a broken soul
I am at one with all, and whole.

READING: PSALM 103
Do you remember the first things you learnt about your Christian Faith? I was probably 3 or 4 years old when I was taught to say ‘God is love’ before a very well attended morning Service.

A DISCUSSION ON BODY AND SOUL
The best description we have of God as he actually is can be found in the ‘Book of Common Prayer’:- ‘Everlasting, without body, parts or passions; of infinite power, wisdom and goodness.’ I had no difficulty in realising that I was made up of a body, even before I learnt the catechism. But trying to understand that I had a soul as well as a body proved to be more difficult and has remained so until today.

TRUST HIM
Trust Him when dark doubts assail you,
Trust Him when your strength is small.
Trust Him when, to simply trust Him
Seems the hardest thing of all.
