Axis Becalmed

Qutbuddin Loren Smith
On Heritage (July 2016)
Inward Light
And what is history but
Stones by boys on fathers’ 
Ponds, beyond the lily pads
Where sit the frogs of conscious
Evolution . . .

So wars evolve of themselves!
While fathers get lost in their
Competition, vengeance and 
Fictional futures of old 
Realities . . . 

Father God, for your sake, Please!
Awaken Sophia’s Heart’s
Beingness . . . within the hearts
Of men . . . that their egos might
Know Peace not war . . .

Dedicated to Laurie Seymour, who has spurred my creativity, February 3, 2016.
