Spiritual Poetry

This is a slowly developing anthology of favourite spiritual poetry.

Enlightenment is like the moon reflected on the water.
The moon does not get wet, nor is the water broken.
Although its light is wide and great,
The moon is reflected even in a puddle an inch wide.
The whole moon and the entire sky
Are reflected in one dewdrop on the grass.

    “….when Hod kisses Netzach, there Tiferot shines…”
    -dafree whitewolfe

    beautiful beyond articulation
    oneness ever strange always familiar
    a mystical truth tantalizes each mind

    pursued with the temerity of grief
    grasping for that which remains beyond reach
    an unknown joy betokening splendor

    daunting such souls as fail to persevere
    with unresisting saintly diligence
    as only not unknowing can fathom

    frustrated by carnal fragility
    each soul enables its endeavoring
    ever returns until such other finds

    weaving radiant multiplicity
    into a darker tapestry wherein
    each that one other unfolding enfolds

    simplicity confounds complexity
    as true love surrenders to purer love
    nothing persists unchanged amidst the shadows

    just unconditional love remains unchangeable
