Calf on the Altar

This incident is taken from the Old Testament. When Moses went up to the mountain to meet God the Israelites made a calf of Gold on the altar and started worshiping it. As an idiom calf on the altar is blaspheming God. Don’t be a calf on the altar and read astrology columns. Calf on the altar is a deadly sin. God is jealous about the people performing the calf on the altar.

Today was a slow crawl. Morning melodies into an epiphany. Poets sing in the sky. I look at the flowers cradling the tree called flame of the forest. They form a beauty that cannot be described. Today is a Sunday and all the Quakers dressed in white are going to the church. I believe that life has a meaning and purpose given by God Jehovah Jesus. I always wonder what to write? Some days are more creative. Writing is the passion of the pen. Writing is a poetic ornament. Writing is the heart of desire. Writing is the dance of literature. Writing is a song of music. I am still reading the Old Testament. Wonderful is God’s way in leading Israel from slavery in Egypt. The Israelites were a grumbling lot. God looked after them well while they were traveling in the wilderness. God provided them water from a rock and rained down quail and bread as manna. If we look at the Old Testament, it shows how the Israelites struggled for existence.

Epiphany for a Lover

Darling Honey, Dearest Lover, you are an awakened poem of romance, a cradle of love, a song of beauty, a nymph of passion. Let me embrace you as a romantic sunset. Let me kiss your sensual lips and feel them like morn’s dew. Your body is tender and sensuous as a flowing brook. Let me suckle your orifices with tremulous joy. Let me penetrate you and sing a joyful song.

 

Epiphany

Psyche your marvel—nature’s decorated ornament—there nature has perched you on wings sublime—there you float in the air like the strings of the harp being plucked— you colorful entity—you music of nature—you marvel of God’s creation –there you go like the psalms being said—you are a psychedelic halo—a gaze of a seer—a magic for the soul—a cantata for the heart.

From the Bible

The Bible teaches us that WORDS are powerful things and we have to use them with care as words carry a curse or a cure or a blessing. I can quote one example from the Old Testament. When Jacob was leaving Laban (Rebecca was Laban’s Daughter) his uncle along with his wife Rebecca, Laban a pagan accused him of stealing his household Gods. To that Jacob replied that whoever has stolen them will be cursed and die. And when Rebecca was having pregnancy complications she succumbed to death. Another example is from the New Testament. While Jesus was traveling he came across a Fig Tree. He was feeling very hungry and to his irony it had no fruit though it was the fruiting time. Jesus cursed the Fig Tree and it withered. So the lesson is WORDS can generate blessings or curses.
