A Child’s Laughter

laughing girl

The scriptures are a priceless gift,

But sometimes we need a break from our studies.


Discipline, fasting and meditation

Can take you very far indeed,

But life isn’t all about solemn routine.


God isn’t confined to dusty tomes

And silent temples…


Free and formless like the wind;

Wild as a dancing flame;

Like buds in Springtime bursting

Here and there and everywhere;

With spontaneous joy and magic

Spirit blossoms!

Like a child’s laughter.

~ Ben
