    beloved of the One True
    elemental child we are
    woven from the ways of dust
    each breath testifies of origins
    even destinations
    and proof?
    proof is often a wooden bowl
    collecting elemental ways
    that drift close to imperceptibly
    on the slightest of breezes
    somewhere between sunlight
    and shade
    proof is often words strung
    together like colorful beads
    that sound much like
    "Oh thank you Jesus"
    and the Spirit knows
    Jesus is the Word of God made flesh
    oh beloved of the Shepherd
    a blink in time may find us
    at the feet of adam and eve
    before the serpent wiley
    and subtle came to play
    or we can be wisked away to
    the days of Nimrod who
    would reach out and grab heaven
    by reason of his might
    by way of his pride
    by fashion of his wielding
    a world of unity
    wrongfully directed
    or we can sigh and blow by
    scenes of a world washed away
    in an all consuming flood
    where the One True was
    a God of water and gopher wood
    where a way was counted in
    subtle increments of two
    and you beloved
    have been precious in His sight
    since the days
    before Noah's son's, sons
    replenished the earth
    Oh we can speak of origins
    and identities from the very first
    beloved of the Most High God
    child of my Father
    and we can embrace in fear
    and reproach on the dank
    confines of the heartless holds
    ships blown by the sails
    of a cruel divine design
    set against the gales
    of chastisement
    with no inkling that
    the words
    "thou shalt have no other gods
    before me"
    have more gravity than the
    whole of this galaxy
    and we can raise up
    and peer beyond the tears
    the anguish the grief
    and the sorrow
    the anger the blood
    the death and worse
    the life of injustice
    oppression and manifold woes
    to a mercy at the hand
    that weaves all purposes
    and plans
    yes beloved
    we can speak of remnants
    the tried
    who emerge as the finest gold
    who have an eternal place with us
    beloved
    after the blink of this moment
    and the wisp of this time
    we beloved
    elemental children of our Father
    we will have forever

    much...much truth in this scribe...

    "the days of Nimrod who
    would reach out and grab heaven
    by reason of his might
    by way of his pride"

    if the world only knew how much of an impact this
    demon has on this world currently...man
    this would be a much better place...

    enjoyed this piece to the max
    peace
    khasm

    fo' sho'. each one's gotta teach one tho.
    I wish we all understood better that
    when you divide a numberless number
    by 1/3, you still have a numberless number.
    or at least numbers only God knows.
    Not to mention that these 1/3 spiritual beings
    we call demons don't come in the same size
    shape type color etc... I imagine the variety
    is endless...
    Peace Khasm!
