Aphorisms by Howard Salzman No 23

The umbilical cord is cut at birth
but not the divine connection,
yet we try to return
to the source of our creation.
not realizing that we never left.

The dance of the devil is subtle and elusive
it will appear in a flash
and be gone
leaving no mark or warning.
Be on guard
for evil comes in many ways
at times, is hidden behind the good.

The walls of your church
have heard your prayers
and each time you return
the prayers accumulate
and are returned to you
when you are unable to pray.

He who collapses into himself
experiences the pain of despair
for all he hears
is the cries of his own heart
and the marauding mind
that moves in darkness.

Speak Your Mind
