What Man Was Jesus?

Jesus of my aspiration
What soft wisdom did you possess?
In long-haired dark-skinned manhood
What conviction did your body bear thus?

Through you what faith of ages
Were we able to perceive?
What infinity and eternity
In endless eyes and breath?

When you wore the soft cloths
Of garment that touched your feet,
How tall was the soft-folded hood
That touched your gentle forehead?

What eyes shadowed in their fire
Burned with infinite mystery beneath?

The Breath Of Jesus

(Christchurch shooting, 15-3-19 RIP)
 
‘The Breath of Jesus’
Stems from Surah 5.110 of the Qur’an
In which Jesus makes a model bird out of clay,
And, by breathing upon it, brings it to life.
 
May the Breath of Jesus
Spoken in Christian Bible and Islamic Koran
Take the clay bird of this clay world,
Breath upon it, bring it to new life.

Blessings On Islam

(Christchurch shootings, 15-3-19 RIP)

Blessings on Islam
Holy brothers and sisters
From the Western Shores, of Christendom
From our common ancestor in Abraham
From the monk to the priest to the mosque to the imam
Blessings on Islam, Blessings on Christendom
There is only one God, and has all Names.

Kia Kaha Aotearoa

(Christchurch shooting, 15-3-19)
 
As is being
expressed
everywhere
in NZ,
 
I feel our
common strength
and desire
to not
 
Let things
like this ‘win’.
 
– – – – –
 
We will all
just take
such a ‘wave’
of violence –
 
And push back!,
and love
a little harder,
prove
 
That the ‘wave’
of Good
is stronger!
 
And more visible
and vocal.
 
Kia kaha Aotearoa.

I went to look

For a special YouTube video
From my library to send to you,
And found the perfect one.

This is called a ‘3-D fractal trip’,
Using very good computer software
That’s based on Mandelbrot mathematics
(fractal infinities).

The 3-D solid-looking ‘architectural’ structures
(which as an engineering man you’ll appreciate)
Are being constantly ‘fleshed’ in and out
By other 3-D similar forms ‘growing through and receding etc.’.
(and hence it’s 4-D really as we’re including time).

Anyway – have a cup of green bush tea on me
And check this out. 

For one wise man and never-grow-old inspiration
Who is young enough and still kicking (ass)
At his age to know what ‘trip’ we are talking about here.

And it’s the perfect present
As it’s what you’ve helped me realize.
Life is ‘Like In A Dream’.
