Come, Holy Spirit

Ah what are you in this high frequency life? Bewitched I am by your sheer silence; Consumed fully by your soothing vibes; Deepening, animating my very existence. Enter you please with or without my behest; For my full reality is dependent on you; Glorious, gentle summon let me stay with you; Harden me not, useless talking be ceased. In my throne you sit that I may find a sweet home; Just utter sublime to listen to your inner stirrings; Keep me mindful of you that I may find myself in tune; Like a river, you flow where you would like to go; Mostly to where my inner voice and spirit slumber. Nestle me in your presence to reveal life’s essence; Overwhelming it may be; yet it is vital to me; Preserve me from harm and what is irrelevant; Quietly search the depths of my soul entwined; Relieve me of pointless demanding human toils; Spirit, oh, Holy Spirit, you are peace and light! Truth eternal share unto me like a faithful friend; Undo this false character to unfold my real gem; Virtuous are you for not tolerating my whims; Wisdom you offer amid confusion is enlightenment. Xanthate to my tasteless life, that’s what you are! Yeast to raise my soul dry, so I may be revivified! Zephyr, that bends my all-knowing will, come to me again. 8.23.14
