Psalm - revisited

Poetry By: donkylemore
Classics


A psalm I never really understood merged into the Celtic Autumn festival- which neither do I understand - where the corporal and spiritual worlds fuse and there's passage between the two .. when the dead and living meet.. clumsy .. but something I've always wanted to try. Does it work .The reading is as laborious as the writing if that's any consolation.
But who really understands mysticism anyway .

Psalm 115 ( an interpretation- revisited )
For the Lord is good;



Are we and not yet we ourselves ; our full -selves ?
Nor are yet they yet they themselves either their full-selves
*
We and they are interweaving in and out of corporeal and spiritual existence
And between these there is not a sliver , no not one nanometre of distance ,
And no perceptible resistance.




Let falling sycamore seeds
Make a joyful noise to the all the earth!

The curled up leaf not fall in sadness
Cast free and go not clinging
But with go with exhilarated singing


Go ; and do not count the price
Of what you've left behind as you visit Paradise


Know that all the earth
Is made of He who made us, and all we're worth

We are but his sycamore seeds
His mushroom spores ; and tangled weeds

Now as a sheep of his pasture.
Go forth with rapture

And as you enter now this October night
Let the heavens burn more bright

Go bravely to his courts with praise and with thanksgiving,
Yes, leave the living but this short instant for their grieving

Time is neither on your side nor mine .
Time is but the vehicle which for now lets us entwine
Ephemeral body , soul and spirit and mind

*


Are we and not yet we ourselves ; our full -selves ?
Nor are yet they yet they themselves either their full-selves
