The Divine

We cannot force

The divine within us

To awaken


We awaken

When the divine

Awakens us


When that within us

Comes to life



I was drawn

Into the divine

Not by my will

But by the will of God


And found in the divine

All my desires

Were fulfilled by that

In which I had no desire


Word of God

His word is like an echo

That when sent out

Returns to him

Again and again


But it returns to him

Hollow, empty

Nothing but an echo

Of his words


When will his word

Return to him fulfilled

And who can receive it


St. John 10:16

“And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.”
