The dove and the serpent

Prophet, your magic tricks

don’t work on me.

And your god does not lure

or scare me, either.


No promise of pleasure

nor glory nor love

today nor hereafter

can seduce me…


…For I see

every promise is empty

and the deepest pleasure

I already am.


Only my Beloved exists

and there is no space

between S/He and I.


No one is higher.

No one is lower.

Each is a Universe

unto itself.


I walk between worlds

and honour the breath

of my Beloved

in infinite forms.


You cannot tempt me

upon any path.

No matter how safe

or how wild.


Alone in the beauty of the world

I walk the pathless path.

The dove and the serpent

are one in my heart.


Always in this moment now.

Nothing to fear, no-one to lose.

No need to choose.

  1. I felt many of those words in my heart and my gut. Powerful and beautiful. Still resonating in me: “…no matter how safe or how wild.” I get it. I totally get it.

    Holding you in my heart.
