Before sleep had left bones
with dreams still whispering,
as fleeting as the sunrise,
for one short ray of understanding
Without need for scripture or sacrifice,
tithe, temple or testament.
No spokesperson or man behind a curtain
pulling levers of smoke and smite
Not all-knowing, all-powerful,
no rules and regulations in 6-point type.
Just you and me and our daily bread:
how we love one another
