The Kingdom



"Purge yourself of desire...
Present yourself with your need...
Offer your faith, green as a leaf "1

How to purge desire
identify
own
release into the wild
deal with the unintended
outcomes

trust comes on the wind
gentle catastrophic
balm

sitting watching waiting
looking out of the window
in expectant hope
of a golden dawn of out there
truth masked
heart
and soul
in leaden case
purge the lead
expose
rawness

a good job we have each other
that we were first loved
cupped in palm
and more
risked all


1R.S.Thomas "The Kingdom"
