TASTING GOD

What does God smell like?
Perhaps we should ask a dog.

What does it feel like to be “taken up into the spirit”?
Perhaps we should query the diving-down ducks.

Every sentient being “knows” God in their own unique manner
Except humans who generally think spiritually only in blueprints.

We do know God – but several steps removed –
In our focused, yet abstract way.

Backing up a bit, we can gain some perspective
But the intensity of the experience diminishes –
On the other hand, if we move closer – like a lover should –
We often lose a sense of the whole.

Perhaps we should think about reclaiming our distant vegetable self –
Or take up an intimate relationship with stones –

In other words, leave our beautiful minds at home
And approach God “fresh” –

That is, close as “reality” can get –

Licking close.
