Food For God

Written by  on February 4, 2019 

Hungering for ecstasy?
Urging to merge with the infinite sea?
Right now lives every opportunity
To swim joyfully, ecstatically free

Ask the first person with a smile
Contentment rests on a wise face
Listen for their truth and listen slow
The present has no need to race

Ask the girl twirling in the air
Making love while fingering her hair
She laughs at lies, fears no crying
Never judges, doesn’t dare

Ask the boy dancing free
Spinning in space, special relativity
Time dilated from inside his soul
Giving his life positivity

Ask the old woman, she might know
She has lived her life whole
But is still willing to grow
How to feel good, she says, I’ll tell you how
Live this very moment right here in the now

What works wonders for me
Is accepting others the best I can
For every woman and every man
Being a loving person is being human

And if in any way I am caught by doubt
I use my love for God to figure it out
I ask for forgiveness and find connection
Dancing to the rock of ecstatic perfection

I read the Good Book.
I offer a knowing look.
Still I keep my eye peeled
For that internal devil
Prejudiced scales are not on the level

Be a generous and loving neighbor
Create a kind mood
Think of Love as God’s favorite food

We deserve to serve it
Give it away
Offer it humbly,
day after day

The more Love we share
The more God provides
The clearer the picture
The safer all rides

Our Love for each other
Is God’s favorite meal
Our reward for God’s feeding
Is the joy we feel
