Down and Deep
Down and Deep, in shadowy Soul of Man,
Among wanton desires and greed,
Can there be a winsome plan
For Love and nascent need?
Can some benign and gentle force
In shapeless wonderment
Come to settle in due course
Fulfilling noble Testament?
Were we to call such Phenomena
A Deity from No Time and Space
Would we be judged Anathema
Or God’s servant full of grace?
Wander and wonder we through ageless
Eons of Earthen causes and effects
Glimpsing beauty and sages
Man’s mortal goodness and defects.
Until the Orb upon which we dwell,
Spins one last earthly time
And settles some in Hell,
Others in Heaven’s Holy Clime.
On a long-ago parchment it is said
Man’s search for the Holy Grail
Doth lead Man to dread
The fiery furnace of Hell.
So, see wonders of this ageless Orb
Listen to the music of your Soul
Allow not your lives absorb
The leaf of the Lotus toll.
