They'll tell you they have the answer.

When your up against the concrete
on the diagonal beneath life and death.
Floating under the bridge in between the space were cold becomes warm,
and death is life.

They will come to you with their answers and promises.
Though their promises don't inspire, because they are expired.

When your soul aches,
In the solitude of heart break,
Peace is creased in the fold of the expressed; in the space where hate becomes love,
and sorrow floats on the waters of joy.

They will come to you with their answers and promises.
Though their promises don't inspire, because they are expired.

They will feed you with spoiled manna from packaging of old,
Look for me in the spaces between and there you will be filled.
Look for me between the crease and the fold and there will be peace.
Look for me between death and life, I am living manna packaged in you.

Tread not in their answers and promises, float along in the inspired inbetween,
I will be there, your life and home ... I promise.

In response to your blogs my experience collaborates Quaker faith with the Buddhist Religion. My Cousin had been to high school in China during The Cultural revolution and imparted on us the beginning of a great teaching that life and death never end once we begin the process. My Quaker Mother whose family is both Christian and Atheist returned the favor by inviting that side of her family into the spirit of a society of Friends. Today this all leaves me with a broken heart seeing that my only surviving parent is in a Nursing home where her life is cared for by a community of health professional and aids. Yet as I can recognize in my own marriage to a loving wife that my Mother and I had sincerely been no more than best friends at one time. I ask if Life and Death has no beginning or end, and if the spirit of letting go of the Earth is only a transitional, transformation of the consciousness and pure reason that lay ahead.
