Poetry by Simon

I have been travelling for many years
upon these endless circular stairs
each weary step carries me higher
up the endless circular spire

Upward, onward, ever forward
inexorably I move toward
The uppermost pinnacle of the sky
far above where the angels fly

And at the top, the very apex
my arms lift in ecstatic reflex
The light of heaven blazes down
triumph my robe, glory my crown

And as I await the final litany
I apprehend an o’erwhelming ephihany
The final song is not yet sung
The journey’s not over – it never begun

Poetry by Erika

This Life Divine

Glory Be to the Universal Potter!
Or do you believe but for one second in Time
That you fashioned your Self
out of your own clay
To live this Life Divine?

Glory Be to the Universal Mind!
Or do you believe but for one second in Time
That you created your own Mind
To contemplate your Self in this Life Divine?

Glory Be to the Universal Breath!
Or do you believe but for one second in Time
That you breathed your Self into existance
With your every breath
To breathe this Life Divine?

Glory Be to the Universal Wine-Maker!
Or do you believe but for one second in Time
That you have made the Wine
From which you have become drunk
In this Life Divine?

Glory Be to the Universal Seamstress!
Or do you believe but for one second in Time
That you have fashioned Matter as your dress
To clothe your Self in this Life Divine?

Glory Be to the Universal Eye!
Or do you believe but for one second in Time
That you have created both your eyes
In the Image of The Eye
To see this Life Divine?

Glory Be to the Universal Mirror!
Or do you believe but for one second in Time
That you created All-Reality and All-Humanity
To mirror the depth of this Life Divine?

Glory Be to the Universal Spirit!
Or do you believe but for one Minute
That you have created all the Spirits that liveth
In All-Time, in this Life Divine?
