Poem: Initiation, or, the Mystery of the Tower

or, the Mystery of the House of God

& when at last i hold the key
after searching, & searching, & feeling lost
i wonder was it wrong of me
to value thressholds never crossed

& when at last i try the lock
without once stopping thinking twice
i find i barely had to knock
in fact a whisper would suffice

& when -- at last! an opened door!
no more of would or could or might
i wonder what i waited for
Time is & always has been right

& when, at last, my steps are through
no failing -- no trying --
no fear
no fear
i find i only needed to
to see a thing familiar here.

nothing real can be threatened
nothing unreal exists
therein lies the grace of God

(a course in miracles)

Poem: all of me to All of You

all of me to All of You

or, prologemena to any future understanding

Reflected in the eyes you see

i live forever now

and never once the same

as Gods, create; as mortals, dream

alone together fear

the secrets in this game

I Find I Give You All Of Me

& you i know you know

that beauty is a dare

for what you see you merely - seem

though every thing is Here

I am a mirror: stare

written circa 1984-5
