My love is as nothing
and so I chop it up
and put it in the ground.      
I light flames
as if words were not enough,      
that their flickerings
would talk and talk to heaven.

My hands should be severed
for I am a magician.
I make smooth
the surface of the mound.
A girthy stalk
of hearty leaves
punctures through the clouds.

Non-ambiguity and non-contradiction are one sided and thus unsuited to express the incomprehensible. -Jung

This reminds me of small pieces of paper I used to write things on then burn them in ritual so my thoughts would be amplified, love spells and the like.

It also causes me to think about my prayers, how they at times can be very self-centered in the same manner, but please leave me my hands.

Very simple yet grande again. I like this series of poems you are sharing with us lately. Poems like this have so much going on with so little said so just reading can make our mind wander all over the place, wish I really knew what this one was about.

Nice. I like it. :yes:

I need to post my own poetry some time... I'm just always nervous of possible ridicule...

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Don't be nervous friend... poetry is a great way to explore and share your heart.. Only post what you feel like sharing and dont listen to the naysayers.. We have to get use to ridicule anyway if we want to be ever able to voice our true opinions or speak up for anything/anyone...

You already know what its about.. ;) you just said it...  poetry is for the reader as much as the author, so what it spoke to you, that's what its about.. :)

Thanks for your responses I believe you... :)

That's it! I quit writing poetry. Your poem just blew all my previous attempts at writing poetry clear out of the water.

Very nice SpiritWriter. :yes:

What the hell, why not?... It's not like it matters anyway... Might as well just lay it all out...
