POEM: Misconceptions

What if sin is misconception,

a misconception of Truth’s dimension,

a believing in the Enemy’s deception?

 

We must shed the lies

and break the bond of sin that ties.

We must be changed by conversion’s cries.

 

For it is only when the seed dies

that it will be reborn and arise

and gain sight as its prize.

 

The clarity that is retrieved

when one drops the preconceived

and opens at last to the unbelieved.

 

For, when of God we perceive

of God we can receive

and then of God we may conceive.

In Praise of Quaker Colors

I can’t find the passage now, but I know it’s there. Sometime in the late fall or early winter of 1853, Henry David Thoreau wrote in his journal that nature now has Quaker colors.

I enjoyed this piece of writing for the imagery it presented. While I personally am not religious, I can appreciate the message of the poem about finding belief and a place of peace.
