Flowing with Milk and Honey

Take me to that land
That land flowing
“with milk and honey”
That rich fertile land
Where everything flourishes
Where everything is sweet
Good to eat
Where nothing decays
Where goodness remains
Preserved
Through all the age

Take me to your land
For you flow with honey
“the nectar of the sun”
Your taste lingers on my lips
My mouth burns with your sweetness
I find healing as I take you in
And am nourished
Satisfied
Unworried
For I know
Honey never spoils
It remains
It’s essence unchangeable
Sweet
It will keep
Forever

Like ancients of old
I spread honey on my wounds
To remove life’s sting
Honey to help me sleep
When nightmares creep
And steal away my joy
Honey….
Pure, sweet....honey

A land of “milk and honey”
An abundance of milk
To satiate
No dryness but streams
Found on demand
An ever ready fountain
Flowing…..
Making life grow in me

Take me to that land
Where all is nourishing and sweet
That land where you are
My soul, my life, 
Feed me these delicate treats
For I am famished
Longing to eat….

    Oh...you mean, myself? HA HA HA HA HA!!! hmmmmmmm....that is why we are idealists as poets, Mr Seal. We live vicariously....in denial, but vicariously nonetheless....Hmmmmmm...I see your pessimistic side lately...Cheer up, Mr Seal....

    Thanks, Richard...this was in no way a spiritual write, but I did like that verse so...I gave it another twist. Thanks for the visit...
