Genesis

Standard

If you wish to believe

Reality was created

By the words of God,

Then how do you perceive his speech?

 

The Old Testament is inspiring to read

‘God said let there be light:

And there was light’.

It’s the most divine poetry indeed

But who are we to know

How to interpret these words?

 

You must agree,

Our world came to be

Long before our language

 

Yes, I know,

God is in all things

He placed understanding in our minds

He speaks all languages of meaning

Therefore he speaks our language too,

But our universe,

And the entire nature that fills it –

It came first

And so did its language

 

It supports us

And it’s of the utmost importance

Without it we are nothing

Remember man was created last

 

We have the ability to speak

And to be silent

To think and meditate

To be creative and create,

But we shall never understand all

In this world of multitude

And who’s to say understanding’s the purpose?

 

Maybe the purpose is just being,

Maybe all existing things

Emit the most subtle chords

Continuously strumming the fabric of space

And they’re music to god’s ears, or better yet

Notes of song

After all,

Even angles sing in praise of God

Kata (Martial Arts)

Standard

I embody opposites

And transitions between them,

Loose flowing energy

I harness to a powerful burst

Be it through an exploding fist or kick –

I learn to aim,

In just the right timing,

And place –

I exert the precise amount of force,

No more than less

My offense is also a defense

 

I like to spend my days practicing

In this world of four dimensional space

Humble beneath clear skies,

I strive to move swiftly and fully

Parallel all directions and all lines.

I wish to stand straight and tall

While bowing low, close to earth,

Walk barefoot on an endless plain

Strip down – to who I am

Who I truly can be,

Yes – I dare show myself,

My passion sets me free

 

I grind myself thin,

Till I hear nothing

But the air in friction round my curves

It’s a desperate addiction – this need,

To perfect body and form

Inside the realm of speed

This, in some deep level,

Relieves my pain,

Reroutes neurons in my brain

 

This is how I concentrate

To forget –

I fill my mind with emptiness,

Close my eyes and breath,

Inhale this world

I wish so much

To become one with

Human Endeavor

Standard

Aren’t we bound with fascination

To our world

Full of form and motion,

Full of color and sound.

For us, it’s our gathered body

Of knowledge

In which we choose to put creativity

To capture what holds in infinity

Of thoughts and ideas,

Even the same ones can always be new,

In so many ways

Contemplation

Standard

I left it to float in a sea of ponder

Still, like solitude, alone with thoughts.

Sometimes in me flow currents,

Of awe and wonder,

The ones I find – I lose

Or maybe dry out.

 

I run and run

To be faster

Than the blink of an eye

Faster than light

But it doesn’t matter

How strong my will

I’m always back

To where time stands still
