“What Force Wills It?”

By: Forrest Rivers

shade of sun and clear blue sky

The eye blinks

But what force wills it to blink?

The ear hears

But what force wills it to hear?

The nose smells

But what force wills it to smell?

The tongue tastes

But what force wills it to taste?

The mind thinks

But what force wills it to think?

The sages say that at the moment of death

When the eternal indwelling light

Drops the body

The senses then cease to exist

Center your awareness

On that eternal indwelling light

And discover the answer to what wills

Your eyes to blink

Your ears to hear

Your tongue to taste

Your nose to smell

And your mind to think.

“God’s Debris”

river between brown rocky mountains during daytime

Ants industriously building

Their homes in clay

Bees busily buzzing

In their hives of honey

An intricate network

Of trees

Producing air for us to breathe

And faithful rivers

Carving their paths

Through the mountain side

We are God’s debris

That’s what we are

Why should we think that we are any different

Then the ants, the bees, the trees

And the rivers running free?
