The Matter of Divinity

by Pujakins

God does not begrudge me my wine
for my intoxication is God,
remembrance of one before two.

Intoxication hints of God,
dissolving boundaries
Expanding essence.

Loving God means loving all,
even cockroaches
these too being holy.

So too must I love mine enemy
who somehow demonstrates
the mysterious love of God.

It's hard to love your enemy and those pesky critters but they are God's creatures and we have to love all the creatures. Good poem.

the title caught me first.
This is a profound piece, and a very honest write!

i like these verses "Intoxication hints of God,
dissolving boundaries Expanding essence"

and reminded of Yashua the Massiah who said,
"Be not drunk with wine, where there is excess,
but be filled with the Holy Ghost."

great write, and thanks for posting.

sincerely Kenny.
