A spectral ship spreads its heavenly wings,
soaring through the heavens where planets sing.
We’re the passengers of this sorry ship of fate,
we’re the lost captain and the mates.
This ship sails to the heavens where angels breathe,
an interstellar traveler flying through solar seas.
Is the divine birthed on Earth, or
does it sink down from Orion’s girth?
Returning, turning we ride the wavy waves
where our souls become frothy wraiths,
visages of what once was us, and still we sing Hallelujah!
While the Earth spins through its heavenly traverse
pray the Kaddish with an open mind,
bend at knee, just one more time
while the dusky sky turns into a pinkish rime.
Your own prayers that reach out to Thee
rise up through the bony branches of the trees
as we spread our span of broken wings.
Praying to be a holy, Godly rod
to torch the sky with Your sacred words!
Dance that crazy Tango with God
with hearts locked into every beat,
giving all that’s left for seed!
Sunshine filters through the bare limb trees,
casts a ray upon our given graves
as we become a shadow of ourselves.
God’s heart beats throughout our waves
of souls rising from the dead, a long, lost line
of those who were once ahead.
Pulsing within the Hanging Gardens of Babylon,
throbs God’s heart in the settling sea’s bottom
where Atlantis erodes within the wakes.
God’s heart is crushed beneath the weight of 9/11, a day
like no other, or so we pray.
Through the tunnels that lava scathed,
through the caverns that water made,
pounds God’s heart, to give us hope.
Time has no beginning, no end, it’s all an illusion
in all our chaotic confusion of what’s what.
Upon the Seven Seas our ship soars up to the divine
as we fly over the inexplicable Nazca lines.
We pray to Thee for really there’s only You.
We know there’s nothing new,
all the heavens are within, without You.
You’re within the high Alpines and desert’s trembling heat,
who are intrinsically Yours and pristine.
We fly by the given signs and find the means
to be with You as the sun wanes behind the rungs
of a ladder reaching up to Thee.
We inhale Your air into straining lungs,
to breathe in You, to become just one.
