Jun 6, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer || Juicy Mangoes

Updated: Apr 11


As philosophers are wont to do

Heated arguments construe

Objections, dialectics, pros and cons

Formlessness or formed icons

Wise mystic saint had this to say

In guiding seekers on the way

Heady gymnastics made to please

Are like explorers counting leaves

Averse to taste of numbering speech

Some will want to further reach

Seeking something far more sweet

Their delight to juicy mangoes eat

Golden yellow pulp and juice

Stained mouth used as slurping sluice

To watch a child’s delightful feast

In wide eyed wonder pure joy released


O Lord when your precious gift of thought is wasted on analyzing and counting and playing trivial pursuit, my heart closes and I no longer feel your presence. Open up my heart to you alone so that my speech may be only of thee and I may taste the sweetness of your flowing love.
