divine assurance…

divine assurance

one day
a man came
to the village
saying that his book
held
the true word
of god
and that
all we knew
was
but myth
bapa dola
asked
does your book
speak
of the desert fox
how its imprints
on the desert sands
spoke of your coming
and
how you would
lie low
beneath the sands
before the day
was done
hearing this
the man ran
from the village
and
bapa dola
smiled
saying
not all true words
are myths
and
not all myths
are true

  1. It’s true; in the ‘holy books’, what is meant to be a metaphor is taken literally — and what is meant to be taken literally is taken as metaphor.
